Renowned for its amazing technical expertise, unique artistry and signature use of live music, the Mark Morris Dance Group and Music Ensemble has been called "the preeminent modern dance organization of our time" (Yo-Yo Ma). Since founding the company in 1980, Seattle native 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 delicious wit. The program will include the lighthearted Dancing Honeymoon, with songs from the 1920s and '30s; Numerator, set to Lou Harrison's "Varied Trio"; and The Trout, a recent work performed to Schubert's Trout Quintet.
