Lar Lubovitch Dance Company Highlights

The pas de deux from Lar Lubovitch’s Concerto Six Twenty-Two (1986)—music by Mozart—is among the most beautiful dances created in the 20th century. Certainly, the slow movement to which it is set is one of Mozart’s most plaintive and moving. But to make a dance in which love seems to lift the lovers into slow-motion flight, without the use of pointe shoes or pulleys, let alone leaps, is wondrous. Lubovitch is a modern-dance choreographer with a deep gift for narrative, so he has also worked in ballet and on Broadway. Here’s a chance to see a compilation of highlights from the broadcast premieres of three acclaimed Lubovitch works: the Mozart pas de deux; 1997’s Othello, performed by the San Francisco Ballet; and The Planets, created in 1995 for an ensemble of ice skaters and non-skating dancers from the U.S. and Canada. —L.J.
