Best of Boston

1999 Best Duet

Mark Morris and Yo-Yo Ma

Morris’ yearly appearances in Boston have become an eagerly awaited tradition, but this year Yo-Yo Ma and his cello joined the dancers on stage at the Wang Center for a dazzling series of duets. The great Baryshnikov also danced, briefly but memorably, still showing more sheer expressiveness in a single gesture than most dancers do in their entire career.
