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!

POP-UP LIBRARY EVENT
Music and book lovers, take note: The University of Minnesota Libraries will be on site with a music-inspired pop-up library event before the performance and during intermission. Fans of everything from ballet to Minnesota-based musical artists are invited to join Music Librarian Jessica Abbazio and explore a selection of books, scores, and recordings that showcase the breadth and depth of the music, dance, arts, and culture-inspired materials available at the University Libraries.
