New Love Song Waltzes, which has become something of a signature piece of the company, gives expression to an all-embracing amorous gusto. Love Song Waltzes is, in comparison, a more thoughtful, more restrained view of passion.
Two ravishing dance works are performed to Brahms’ song cycles, Neue Liebeslieder Walzer and Liebeslieder Walzer. They effect a deeply affecting homage to loving relationships of every kind and size. Set to Brahms’Liebesliederwalzer, Op. 52, and Neue Liebesliederwalzer, Op. 65, they paint a revealing picture of love in our time.
Socrates Mark Morris’s newest masterpiece, Socrates, anchors this remarkable program, which features a triptych of premieres. Described by The New York Timesas “simply beautiful… [and] sensuously attractive,” it is set to Satie’s eponymous score, a three-part drama with text from Victor Cousin’s translation of writings referring to Socrates by Plato. Demonstrating Morris’s ongoing commitment to live music in performance, Socrates features collaboration between a tenor and a pianist.

This final play by award-winning playwright Wendy Wasserstein, tells the story of a professor whose life is thrown into disarray when she accuses a student, an outwardly stereotypical jock, of plagiarizing his essay on King Lear. Her challenge ultimately becomes facing the danger of becoming everything she has battled against.
This delightfully demented comedy, featuring the hapless lovers Seymour and Audrey and an unforgettable man-eating plant, blends doo-wop, rock, and Motown into a hilarious send-up of B-movie horror flicks. Featuring a book and lyrics by Howard Ashman, and music by Alan Menken (the powerhouse duo behind Disney films The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, and Aladdin,) Little Shop of Horrors contains hit tunes like "Suddenly Seymour," "Downtown (Skid Row)," "Grow For Me," and the title track "Little Shop of Horrors."
