Mark Morris Dance Group
Spring Dance at the London Coliseum
L’Allegro, il Penseroso ed il Moderato
ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE
Described by The Washington Post as America's "Mozart of modern dance" Mark Morris has changed forever the way audiences see modern dance. He returns to the London Coliseum to present his brilliant and majestic L'Allegro, il Penseroso ed il Moderato.
"Once in a very rare while something comes along that simply has to be seen. For dance fans that something is Mark Morris's L'Allegro, il Penseroso ed il Moderato, just over two hours of blissful dance – and music" - THE TIMES
When it premiered in 1988 LiAllegro, il Penseroso ed il Moderato was instantly heralded as a landmark work. The musical landscape includes Handel's pastoral ode set to the poetry of John Milton. The set design includes inspiration from William Blake's later watercolours illustrating Milton's poems. Boasting 24 dancers, ENO's Orchestra, the New London Chamber Choir and four vocal soloists, don’t miss "one of the very greatest dances of the late 20th century" (Boston Herald) as it returns to London for the first time in ten years.
