Also at Lincoln Center

The Mark Morris Dance Group returns to Lincoln Center's Mostly Mozart Festival, just across the plaza at the Rose Theater July 10-13.

Mark Morris, the “Mozart of modern dance” (Washington Post), returns to the festival with a new dance work commissioned by Lincoln Center that illuminates the playful tapestry of sound of Satie's Sports et divertissements. Then comes the “remarkable fantasy” of Empire Garden (Times, U.K.), 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.
