Mark Morris Dance Group, Mostly Mozart Festival at Rose Theater, Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Frederick P. Rose Hall, July 10 – 13, 2019

Mark Morris returns to Mostly Mozart Festival with Sport a new dance work commissioned by Lincoln Center that illuminates the playful tapestry of sound of Satie’s Sports et divertissements. Then comes Empire Garden, an exploration of Ives’s lyrical and at times, whimsical Piano Trio. The performance culminates in a Morris masterwork, V, a triumphant and virtuosic piece set to Schumann’s exuberant piano quintet.
