Press Quotes

"No choreographer before Mark Morris has engaged so profoundly with baroque opera, none has set it to dance to such ravishing effect."

"And now there's Mark Morris, as sophisticated a symbol of innocence as any, who sets deceptively artless dancing to some of the most artful music ever written..."

- The Sunday Times (UK)

"Give Mark Morris an extended 17th or 18th century score and watch him make magic."

- San Francisco Chronicle
