“Mozart Dances,” Meany Center for the Performing Arts (Online) - March 12-19, 2021
Mark Morris’ joyful and sublime Mozart Dances is a masterpiece of movement and music. Set to three exquisite Mozart piano works, the choreography is buoyant and exhilarating, exemplifying why Morris is revered as “the most artfully musical choreographer alive” (The New York Times). In this revival of the transcendent evening-length trilogy, the MMDG Music Ensemble provides live music for the lyricism and astounding precision of the Dance Group, with stunning scenic design by celebrated abstract painter Howard Hodgkin (Layla and Majnun)."
The instance of Mozart Dances performed at Cal Performances (Berkeley, CA, September 2019) was the recording streamed on these dates.
