CLASSICAL | 'Mozart at the Lyric Theatre' 

Collaborations as ambitious as "Mozart at the Lyric Theatre" don't come along very often. Here, the Lyric Theatre co-Opera-tive, New York State Ballet, Rochester Oratorio Society, and a cast of professional opera singers will band together for a multidisciplinary performance that looks to be nothing short of epic. The performers will pair two masterworks by Mozart: the immensely successful opera "Le Nozze di Figaro" and the cryptic yet tremendously moving "Requiem." Excerpts from each composition will be interpreted by the dancers of the New York State Ballet, with choreography by Robert Royce and Sarah Rothrock-Rickel, respectively.

"Mozart at the Lyric Theatre" will be performed Friday, February 23, and Saturday, February 24, at the Lyric Theatre, 440 East Avenue. 7:30 p.m. $15-$60. 256-0444; lyrictheatrerochester.org.
