This world-renowned company has captivated audiences for more than 30 years with its sophisticated artistry, extraordinary movement, and overriding musicality. “Astonishingly beautiful and intricate demonstration of genius,” raves The New York Times about the ensemble and its choreographer. Christened “one of the greatest living choreographers” by the New Yorker, Mark Morris is celebrated for his enthralling dance that combines wit and grace, and his unparalleled commitment to the use of live music. “His choreography creates human drama and visual textures, as well as the rhythmic punch and complexities of the musical virtuoso.” (The Washington Post) This wonderful program will include such stunning works as The Office set to music by Antonín Dvořák and Festival Dance set to Hummel’s Piano Trio No. 5 in E Major.
