Since founding the company in 1980, Mark Morris has had a profound impact on the dance world, creating important new works with a singular ability to combine beautiful music, graceful movement, and brilliant wit.

The program will include the lighthearted Dancing Honeymoon, with songs from the 1920s and 1930s; Numerator, set to Lou Harrison’s “Varied Trio;” and The Trout, a new work performed to Schubert’s Trout Quintet.
