What's it about?
George Balanchine’s Mozartiana is a sparkling piece of pure classical dance to similarly effervescent music from the great ballet composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. Created in 1981 towards the end of Balanchine’s career, this is clearly the work of a master of his art, who truly deserves the accolade 'father of American ballet'.

Not to be missed. Why?
The first chance to see this ballet in Birmingham for over a decade.
