Mark Morris — hailed as “the most successful and influential choreographer alive” (New York Times) — returns to Santa Fe with Pepperland, a unique tribute to the 50th Anniversary of The Beatles’ groundbreaking album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, accompanied live by an unprecedented chamber ensemble of voice, soprano saxophone, two keyboards, theremin, and percussion. Ethan Iverson’s original score intermingles arrangements of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, With a Little Help From My Friends, A Day in the Life, When I’m Sixty-Four, Within You Without You, and Penny Lane with six Pepper-inspired original pieces intended especially for Morris’ profound understanding of musical forms: Allegro, Scherzo, Adagio, and the blues. This is a must-see for dance and Beatles fans alike.

Underwritten by Robin Black; Ann Murphy Daily and William W. Daily; Marjorie Tillman and William Watson; Gina Browning and Joe Illick in honor of Sandra Noe and Katie Rountree; Carolyn and Preston Reed; Uschi and Bill Butler; Sonya & Myron Salamon
