“L’Allegro,” set to Handel, at the Music Center tonight


Nostalgia reigns at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion as we prepare to see Mark Morris’s landmark full-evening work from 1988, L’Allegro Il Penseroso ed il Moderato, set to an oratorio by Handel. The piece was made when the Seattle-born choreographer was 32 years old. The co-production with L.A. Opera features live orchestral accompaniment.  A lovely preview site for event here.

Update: Read my review in the Los Angeles Times.
