Mark Morris Brings Elemental New Life to ‘Acis and Galatea’

Patrick Valentino for Boston Classical Review

Morris is no doubt one of the most celebrated and sought after choreographers of the day. His past experience in melding dance with opera (Acis marks the 12th such venture) highlights Morris’s keen, almost uncanny ability to weave the dancing into the musical score with natural balancing that makes the gestures and motions seems as elemental to the musical moment as the pitches and harmonies.
