The Beatles’ groundbreaking album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band has turned fifty. To salute this milestone in musical history, the International Festival of Arts & Ideas has partnered with arts organizations from around the world to commission the Mark Morris Dance Group’s creation of Pepperland. A huge hit at its debut in Liverpool, Morris’s choreography combines with fresh arrangements of Beatles songs and new Pepper-inspired pieces to create what the Telegraph calls “a brilliant homage to one of the great rock albums.”
To complement this program, and Scott Freiman’s Beatles lecture on June 20, a special selection of Beatles-related objects will be on view in the Study Room on Wednesday, June 20, from 2 to 5 pm, and Thursday, June 21, from 10 am to noon.
The Center is proud to be a sponsor of this East Coast premiere. To purchase tickets, please visit artidea.org, or call +1 203 498 3772.
