"Mozart Dances"

Ten years after its premiere, Mark Morris's "Mozart Dances" returns to the Mostly Mozart Festival. It's an ambitious concept: an evening-length dance set to three complex piano works by Mozart, with no story line or overriding concept other than what is suggested by the music. The pianist tackling the two piano concertos (the early No. 11 and the late No. 27), is Garrick Ohlsson. He will be joined by Inon Barnatan for the middle work, Mozart's Sonata in D for two pianos--the heart of the evening. The first piece is for the women of the Mark Morris Dance Group, the second is for the men, and the third is for both, leading to a harmonious resolution. (David H. Koch, Lincoln Center. 212-721-6500. Aug. 24-27.)

This year's typically jam-packed week includes the Kuchipudi dancer Yamini Kalluri, the Mohini Attam expert Sunanda Nair, an all-male triple bill (featuring the Bharatanatyam soloists Sai Santhosh Radhakrishnan and Kasi Aysola with the Odissi exponent Kuldeep Singh), the Kathak ensembles Nadam and Parul Shah Dance Company, the unusual male-female Bharatanatyam duo of Viraja and Shyamjith Kiran, and the festival's resident troupe, Navatman Dance. (Ellen Stewart, 66 E. 4th St. driveeastnyc.org. Aug. 24-28.)
