Mark Morris Dance Group – Mozart Dances – San Francisco

Listening to Mozart allows one to marvel in abundant aural delights: long scalic passages that ascend heavenward; bouncy, patterned bass lines; bold dynamic range; melodic themes that inspire and surprise. Now imagine what it would be like to simultaneously add a visual dimension? No need to imagine such a scenario if you made it to Cal Performances over the weekend to see Mark Morris Dance Group in the delightfully spirited Mozart Dances.
