Mark Morris' lyrical choreography, the emotive voices of Azerbaijan's Alim Qasımov and Fargana Qasimova, the vibrant musicality of The Silk Road Ensemble, and the striking visual palette of British painter Howard Hodgkin combine in this world premiere performance. The timeless story of the tragic love between Layla and Majnun originated in 5th-century Arabia, and later was the foundation for the first opera of the Muslim world. Hajibeyli's powerful music—at once profoundly sorrowful and ecstatic—honors the tale's commitment to love, acceptance, devotion, and peace. #BerkeleyRADICAL #Inclusion
