Mark Morris Dance Group - Sgt. Pepper at 50: Pepperland
STG Presents Mark Morris Dance Group - Sgt. Pepper at 50: Pepperland at The Moore Theatre February 16 - 18, 2018.
Join the worldwide celebration of the 50th anniversary of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band with PEPPERLAND, a new evening-length work by MARK MORRIS. Created at the request of the City of Liverpool, it premiered in May 2017 as part of Liverpool’s season-long tribute to the album.
PEPPERLAND features an original score by composer Ethan Iverson inspired by the songs “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.”
“This great album set a radical new direction for popular music and thought. I was just a child. Fifty years later, with contemporary eyes and ears, we are presenting a comment and a rethinking of this profound cultural artifact with all of the imagination, surprise, humor, and bizarrity intact.” — MARK MORRIS
