About the Event

Pepperland
with live music

Created for the City of Liverpool to celebrate the 50th anniversary of The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, Pepperland is a joyous display of Mark Morris’ choreographic wit and musicality. Ethan Iverson’s original score reimagines selections from the iconic 1967 album in bold new arrangements performed by a lively jazz ensemble of trombone, theremin, vocals, sax, keyboards, and percussion. Morris’ dancers—dressed in a riot of Carnaby Street colors—demonstrate why this dancemaker is noted as “the most successful and influential choreographer alive, and indisputably the most musical” (New York Times). It’s a “can’t miss” evening for lovers of contemporary dance AND music!
