Mozart Moves

Joan Acocella for The New Yorker

Mark Morris’s “Mozart Dances” had its première at Lincoln Center’s Mostly Mozart Festival last August and, for three nights, played to sold-out houses at New York State Theatre, which seats almost three thousand people. This week, the show will be reprised for four nights, again at State Theatre, and tickets are going fast. Some ballets do that kind of box-office, but modern dance almost never does, not to speak of a show that, like “Mozart Dances,” has no ostensible story but is just a choreographic setting of three Mozart piano pieces. Even with Emanuel Ax and Yoko Nozaki at the pianos, backed by the Mostly Mozart Festival Orchestra under Louis Langrée, you would have to be Mark Morris to sell out such a program.
