Press Quotes

"Chopin became deified through the Morris choreography..."

- Berkshire Record

"Fresh and revelatory, the piece liberates and reinvents the music."

- Chicago Sun-Times

"Whatever music he chooses, Morris draws from it patterns of mingling and separating, leading and following, supporting and spurning that are inevitable and surprising, even mysterious."

- Village Voice

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.
