Mark Morris Dance Group presents SGT. PEPPER AT 50: PEPPERLAND
PEPPERLAND is choreographer Mark Morris' unique tribute to the 50th anniversary of The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.
Created at the request of the City of Liverpool to kick off its Sgt Pepper at 50 Festival, the evening-length work features an original score by composer 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 original Pepper-inspired pieces intended especially for Mark Morris' profound understanding of classical forms: Allegro, Scherzo, Adagio, and the blues.
An unprecedented chamber music ensemble of voice, theremin, soprano sax, trombone, two keyboards, and percussion teases out and elaborates on Sgt. Pepper's non-rock and roll influences. This colorful new piece resounds with the ingenuity, musicality, wit, and humanity for which the company is known.Learn more and purchase tickets.
