Following the roaring success of his Beatles tribute Pepperland, Mark Morris teams up again with musical collaborator Ethan Iverson for The Look of Love, a wistful and heartfelt homage to the chart-topping songs of Burt Bacharach. A towering figure across decades of popular music, Bacharach is known for crafting soaring melodies embedded in unique orchestrations influenced by jazz, rock and Brazilian music—his longtime lyricist Hal David providing unsentimental, often bittersweet lyrics. 

This evening-length showpiece features original choreography by Morris and new, lush musical arrangements by Iverson, performed by a unique ensemble of vocals, piano, trumpet, bass and percussion, with singer, actress and Broadway star Marcy Harriel on lead vocals. 

“[Mark Morris is] the most successful and influential choreographer alive, and indisputably the most musical.”
— The New York Times
