Mark Morris, hailed as “the most influential choreographer alive and indisputably the most musical” (The New York Times), returns to the Arts & Ideas Festival with a new evening-length work Pepperland, celebrating the 50th anniversary of The Beatles’ landmark Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. Created at the request of the City of Liverpool as part of the city’s season-long tribute to the groundbreaking album, Pepperland will feature an original score by Ethan Iverson inspired by the album’s unforgettable songs.

Performances are June 21 and 22 at 8 PM. For tickets, go online or call 203-498-3772.
