A Tribute to The Beatles’ Groundbreaking Album
Mark Morris Dance Group
Sgt. Pepper at 50: Pepperland
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.
“The most artfully musical choreographer alive… making us pay fresh attention to something we might not otherwise notice.” The New York Times
