See excerpts from Mark Morris’s signature work, L’Allegro, il Penseroso ed il Moderato, filmed at his group's engagement at the Teatro Real in Madrid, Spain, in July 2014. The three sections seen here are Populous Cities from Act II; The Hunt, a playful scene from Act I; and the joyful finale. The music is by George Frideric Handel, with libretto based on John Milton's poetry.
