Mark Morris' L'Allegro: a life-affirming dose of harmony

Rachel Rizzuto for Bachtrack

Mr. Morris has cultivated a troupe of dancers who infuse his work with rare displays of personality. “Personality” is sort of a dreaded word to use in this sense, but I do not mean to say that the dancers upstage each other or in any way take the focus away from the movement and the harmony of the piece. Rather, I mean to say that his performers have the uncanny ability to take a single moment and crystallize it, giving it fresh meaning and careful detail – it is as if a microcosm of this already joyous and beautiful world has bloomed, and we are given a few seconds to observe its innards.
