The Look of Love

Playful and profound, Mark Morris’ sumptuous choreography finds an ideal counterpart in the chart-topping songs of Burt Bacharach. The legendary composer’s soaring melodies and unique orchestrations shine in lush new arrangements of songs like “Alfie,” “I Say a Little Prayer,” and “What the World Needs Now” by Pepperlandcomposer Ethan Iverson. Broadway star Marcy Harriell offers a rich interpretation of Hal David’s bittersweet lyrics, backed by a live band. In his first major production in five years, Morris draws out both the joy and the piercing depths of these works to craft a heartfelt exploration of pop music’s most timeless theme: love.
