The event, titled "A Conversation With Mark Morris and Simon Morrison," is planned in conjunction with an 8 p.m. performance of the Mark Morris Dance Group at the Matthews Theatre of the McCarter Theatre Center.

Morris and Morrison collaborated on a production of Russian composer Sergei Prokofiev's original 1935 version of "Romeo and Juliet, On Motifs of Shakespeare." For this production, Morrison reconstituted the composer's original intentions and 20 minutes of previously unheard music, while Morris provided choreography. The production was premiered at the Bard Summerscape Festival in July 2008 and currently is on an international tour.

Here's a nice aspect of this program:

The conversation, which is free and open to the public, is sponsored by the Program in Theater and Dance in the Lewis Center for the Arts and by the Department of Music.
