“The Trilogy: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart"

Two dance companies perform three works about one man

Mozart fatigue is a common occurrence among classical music fans, but it can be alleviated by “The Trilogy: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart,” a dance performance by Dominic Walsh Dance Theater and the Sarasota Ballet. Inspired by the life and work of the composer, the evening is a collaboration between the two companies. The visiting Sarasota Ballet will dance Wolfgang for Webb, set to sonatas and symphonic and operatic music. Walsh choreographed the piece for friend and Sarasota Ballet Artistic Director Iain Webb. Amadeus for Anita, which pays homage to DWDT patroness Anita Garten, will be danced by DWDT, and then both companies will come together for the final work, Mozart. With the contrast between the energetic dancing, the clean, cold sets by Libbie Masterson (based on photographs of Antarctica) and the Baroque costumes by company member Domenico Luciano, you’ve got the trappings for an onstage drama that Mozart himself would envy. 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Hobby Center for the Performing Arts, Zilkha Hall, 800 Bagby. For information, call 713-315-2525 or visit www.dwdt.org. $23.25 to $81.25.
Thursdays-Saturdays, 7:30 p.m. Starts: April 30. Continues through May 2, 2009
