Mozart Dances

Music - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

More than a decade after its West Coast premiere in the 2007–08 season, Mark Morris’ sublime, joyful Mozart Dances returns to Zellerbach Hall in its eagerly awaited reprise. Praised for its emotional breadth and formal inventiveness, Morris’ buoyant, exhilarating choreography is set to three exquisite Mozart piano works—the Piano Concerto No. 11 in F Major, the Sonata for Two Pianos in D Major, and the Piano Concerto No. 27 in B-flat Major—in which light and dark reside side by side. The music is performed live by the Berkeley Symphony conducted by Colin Fowler, joined by celebrated Israeli-American pianist Inon Barnatan as soloist. “To hear Mozart through Morris’ ears is to appreciate the music in scintillating new detail” (The Guardian, London).
