Mark Morris celebrates the 50th anniversary of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band with a new dance work that revels in the eccentric charm and joyful optimism of the Beatles’ groundbreaking album. The production features a score by longtime Morris collaborator Ethan Iverson, who leads a chamber ensemble through arrangements of iconic songs from the record mixed with imaginative original compositions.

Berlin’s Schaubühne theater presents a radically revised adaptation of An Enemy of the People, Ibsen’s potent 1882 drama about individual and social responsibility. The story of a whistleblower in a small town whose efforts to speak truth to power are shut down by his self-interested neighbors, the play both implicates and exhilarates its audience in a conversation about the perils of democratic capitalism. Directed by Thomas Ostermeier, for decades a leading creative voice and provocateur in European theater, the production has received strong reactions from audiences and critics alike, largely because of its controversial handling of the play’s climactic scene.
