Mark Morris Dance Group's Sgt. Pepper Tribute
Choreographer Mark Morris, hailed as the "the most successful and influential choreographer alive, and indisputably the most musical," returns to San Diego with Pepperland, a unique tribute to the 50th anniversary of The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. Pepperland features an original score by Ethan Iverson, interspersing arrangements of "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band", "With a Little Help From My Friends", "A Day in the Life", "When I'm Sixty-Four", "Within You Without You" and "Penny Lane" with six Pepper-inspired original pieces intended especially for Mark Morris' profound understanding of classical forms: Allegro, Scherzo, Adagio and the blues. A live chamber music ensemble of voice, theremin, soprano saxophone, trombone, two keyboards, and percussion will explore and elaborate on Sgt. Pepper's non-rock and roll influences. This colorful new piece at San Diego Civic Theatre resounds with the ingenuity, musicality, wit and humanity for which a Mark Morris work is known.
