Has Mark Morris Made Only One Masterpiece?
by JOHN ROCKWELL for the New York Times

But if "L'Allegro," which was created in Brussels in 1988 and concluded its fifth New York run since 1990 at the New York State Theater on Saturday, is Mr. Morris's masterpiece, what's he done since? Should we, as dance lovers and Morris admirers, be concerned that a choreographer still in his prime - he's just shy of 49 - and celebrating the 25th anniversary of his company has not produced a comparable triumph in the last 18 years? And if not, why not?

I personally liked "Gloria" better then "L"Allegro". Maybe because it's the first major work I saw by Morris. And it seems like his signature work, both in terms of it being an early piece, and also emblematic of his use of Baroque and Classical musical (often with a significant vocal component) coupled with modern dance. :wink: Of his "non-classical" works, I liked "Songs that Tell a Story" with music by the Louvin Brothers.
