Aired: 3/27/2015 | 0:01:58 | Clip
Men slap one another in slapstick fashion in a part nicknamed "The Stupid Men's Dance" in choreographer Mark Morris's signature work L’Allegro, Il Penseroso ed il Moderato. The singing is an air for tenor, representing a joyful character, "L'Allegro." The libretto, based on John Milton's poetry, refers to going to see theater by Jonson or Shakespeare.
