Mark Morris celebrates the 50th anniversary of “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” with an exuberant new dance work that revels in the eccentric charm and joyful optimism of The Beatles’ ground-breaking album.
The production, a smash hit with audiences at its Liverpool premiere last year, features a score by long-time Morris collaborator Ethan Iverson, who leads a unique live music ensemble through innovative arrangements of iconic songs from the record including 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
mixed with imaginative original compositions.
