Malandain Biarritz Ballet presents Mozart à 2, an excerpt of the Bal Solitude taken from the German Leipzig Ballet and the Austrian Wiener Staatsballett’s repertoire. Set during a ball where festivities and romantic adventures unite, the duo expresses how loneliness can erode the soul when love is not celebrated. Through dance interpretations of Mozart’s piano concertos, Mozart à 2 showcases the emptiness one may feel when love is not reciprocated.
Back in 1997, a few pages of Mozart’s piano concertos helped create the duos in Bal Solitude. It recounted love stories during a ball, a celebration than can also bring forth loneliness when love is not shared. Mozart à 2 alludes to the changing face of a feeling that is sometimes as deep as the emptiness it brings
