Time Out says

The annual Mozart-inspired summer series, which has focused increasingly on contemporary works in recent years, is enjoying something of a revamp this season. This year's fest features an expanded program of international dance and theater productions, including Catalan theater collective La Fura dels Baus' maximalist multimedia presentation of Haydn’s The Creation and Lucinda Childs, John Adams and Frank Gehry's Available Light. The fest is also venturing beyond the Lincoln Center campus with off-site performances including John Luther Adams's 800-voice choral work, In the Name of the Earth, in Central Park and the New York premiere of Ashley Fure and Adam Fure’s music-theater piece, The Force of Things: An Opera for Objects, at the Gelsey Kirkland Arts Center in Brooklyn. And don't worry, there's plenty of actual Mozart on the lineup too. The composer's works pop up in programs throughout the fest, and the Mostly Mozart Festival Orchestra performs two all-Mozart programs: Prague Symphony (August 3 and 4) and Mozart Requiem (August 10 and 11).
