In 1986, excerpts from Gloria were taped for broadcast for the PBS special Mark Morris, Dance in America.  

The original lighting design by Donald Firestone was revised by Philip Sandström in 1984 and again by Michael Chybowski in 1988.
In 2006, as part of MMDG's 25th Anniversary celebration at BAM, Mark Morris conducted the piece for the first time.
The mission of the Mark Morris Dance Group is to develop, promote, and sustain dance, music, and opera productions by Mark Morris and to serve as a cultural resource to engage and enrich the community.
