Mark Morris Dance Group's Tribute to The Beatles "Sgt. Pepper at 50: Pepperland"
THU, MAY 10
“The most artfully musical choreographer alive… making us pay fresh attention to something we might not otherwise notice.” The New York Times
Hailed as “the most successful and influential choreographer alive, and indisputably the most musical” (The New York Times), Mark Morris returns to Santa Barbara with Pepperland, a new evening-length work celebrating the 50th anniversary of The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. Created for the City of Liverpool’s season-long tribute to the groundbreaking album, Pepperland features Morris’ ingenuity and musicality and is accompanied live by a seven-piece chamber ensemble. An original score by Ethan Iverson intersperses arrangements of album favorites “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 Morris. Co-commissioned by UCSB Arts & Lectures, this colorful work is a must-see for dance and Beatles fans alike.
