Mark Morris Dance Group and Music Ensemble: The Look of Love

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 of popular music, Bacharach is known for his soaring melodies and unique orchestrations influenced by jazz, rock, and Brazilian music — his longtime lyricist Hal David providing unsentimental, poignant lyrics.


This evening-length work features original choreography by Morris and new musical arrangements by Iverson, performed by an ensemble of piano, trumpet, bass, and drums, with singer, actress, and Broadway star Marcy Harriell on lead vocals.

Choreography: Mark Morris
Music: Original songs by Burt Bacharach and Hal David, arranged by Ethan Iverson
Costume design: Isaac Mizrahi
Instrumentation: vocals, piano, trumpet, bass, percussion
