Description: Based on the life of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, this original full-length ballet in two acts follows the young prodigy's arrival at the Austrian court, his fierce rivalry with Antonio Salieri, and the creation of his greatest compositions. This piece touches on themes of isolation, envy, and the solitary life of the outsider. The performance will be immediately followed by a Q&A with Artistic Director Igor Dobrovolskiy and members of the company. Tickets are $40/$30 and can be purchased by phone at 718-951-4500 (Tues-Sat, 1pm-6pm), or online at www.BrooklynCenterOnline.org.
