L'isolata Disabitata, directed by Mark Morris, is his first opear without dancing.

In honor of the bicentennial of Joseph Haydn’s death, Gotham Chamber Opera presented the New York City stage premiere of Haydn’s L’isola disabitata (Desert Island), with a new production directed by Mark Morris. L’isola disabitata is Mark Morris’ first collaboration with Gotham Chamber Opera. The work, with a libretto by Metastasio, calls for four singers and a typical early classical orchestra. Allen Moyer (scenic design) and Elizabeth Kurtzman (costume design) collaborated.

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.
