If there is a single work that secured Mark Morris's place as one of the most important artists of his generation, it is his luminous masterpiece L'Allegro, il Penseroso ed il Moderato, set to the Handel oratorio of the same name. Morris's epic, sublime creation returns to Cal Performances for the fifth time since it premiered in 1988, realized by a cast of 24 dancers, and the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra and Chorus. "I find no end to the intricacies of Mr. Morris's construction, and the meanings that continually pour from them. It fills the soul with wonder; it fascinates the mind with suggestion" (The New York Times).
