MMDG made its Lincoln Center debut with one of Morris’ most beloved evening-length masterpieces, Handel’s L’Allegro, il Penseroso ed il Moderato as part of American Visionaries in 1995. The dance group appeared as part of Lincoln Center Out of Doors in 2001, made its Mostly Mozart Festival debut in 2002, and its White Light Festival debut in 2013 with the 25th Anniversary performances of L’Allegro. MMDG has performed more than 20 different works at Lincoln Center, including three highly-acclaimed evening-length programs in addition to L’Allegro - Mozart Dances, Romeo & Juliet: On Motifs of Shakespeare, and 2014’s Acis and Galatea, all of which were co-commissioned by Lincoln Center.
