Mark Morris Dance Group & Music Ensemble
April 22, 2022 @ 8:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 8:00 pm, repeating until April 23, 2022
Seattle native Mark Morris — revered as “the most artfully musical choreographer alive” (The New York Times) — creates singular works that combine beautiful music, graceful movement and delicious wit. This season, his Dance Group performs three joyful works accompanied by the company’s own music ensemble: Words, set to 18 of Felix Mendelssohn’s 48 enchanting Songs Without Words; Rock of Ages, performed to the adagio movement of Franz Schubert’s Nocturne; and Festival Dances, set to a piano trio by Johann Nepomuk Hummel that reinterprets ballet conventions.
The preeminent modern dance organization of our time.
