Mozart In Motion
Petite Mort by Jiří Kylián
Divertimento No. 15 by George Balanchine
Sechs Tänze by Jiří Kylián
A tantalizing mix of classical, contemporary, and comic ballets danced by one of America’s most exciting companies is paired with Mozart’s delectable music, played live by the incomparable Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra. Mozart in Motion promises to be a “can’t miss” feast for the senses. George Balanchine’s Divertimento No. 15 has been hailed by The New York Times as “the most sublime choreography ever made to music by Mozart.” Jiří Kylián combines physical comedy with powdered wigs and dry wit in Sechs Tänze, while his profound Petite Mort integrates fencing foils and black silks with powerful athleticism and musicality, to striking effect.
