Choreographer Mark Morris' signature work 'L'Allegro, il Penseroso ed il Moderato' came to the big screen for the first time in New Zealand.
Set to Handel's 1740 oratorio based on Milton's pastoral poems, this performance by the Mark Morris Dance Group was filmed live in performance at the Teatro Real in Madrid in 2014. 'L'Allegro' has been performed to critical and audience acclaim all over the world, winning numerous awards including a Laurence Olivier Award.
"Masterpiece isn't a word to be thrown around lightly, but there's no denying that Mark Morris's 'L'Allegro, il Penseroso ed il Moderato' is thrillingly that." - New York Times
