Mozart birthday celebrations are everywhere - have you heard?

This year marks the 250th celebration of his birth. While most groups are satisfied to trot out a concerto or a wind trio to celebrate, the Handel & Haydn Society decided to do it right last night at Symphony Hall, with an all-Mozart program of arias and choruses from his operas “Idomeneo” and “Magic Flute,” as well as incidental music from “Thamos, King of Egypt” and a modern-day premiere of music from a lost ballet, “Ascanio in Alba.”
