The Trilogy:
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

rep_mozart_5th_500x309

The Trilogy  was a result of choreographer Dominic Walsh’s three-year journey of researching the music and historical facts of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s life. In a groundbreaking effort Walsh created Amadeus for his company, Wolfgang for the Sarasota Ballet and Mozart for both companies in a collaboration that received critical acclaim and a recipient of the prestigious Princess Grace and Choo-San Goh awards for choreography.

When asked to describe creating Mozart Walsh said, “… unique about Mozart, and what I was excited to explore, was to create a work that will blended the personalities, skill, and artistic abilities of dancers from two companies.”
