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.
Cal Performances kicks off its 2019-2020 dance offerings with a glorious evening of modern choreography and classical scores. Continuing a decades long bi-coastal artistic exchange, Mark Morris Dance Group brings “Mozart Dances” back to the Zellerbach stage, a work where dance becomes music and music becomes dance. Joining the company in this miraculous endeavor is the Berkeley Symphony.
