Mark Morris – in L’Allegro, Il Penseroso ed Il Moderato – Washington

Oksana Khadarina for DanceTabs

A triumph of the artistic imagination, Mark Morris’s L’Allegro, Il Penseroso ed Il Moderato is grand in scale and emotion. This evening-long dance, which unfolds in two acts, is a breathlessly exciting piece choreographed for 24 dancers and set to George Frederic Handel’s 1740 oratorio of the same title.
