THE MORGANSCOTT Ballet, could, is five years old now, and is sort of an antidote to the NYCBs and ABTs of this town. MorganScott’s dancers are classically trained, yes, and the programs are most definitely ballet, but the strict classical idiom is just a starting point for choreographer Edward Morgan’s repertoire of jazz, neoclassical and contemporary pieces. Like “Fiesta de Aranjuez,” backed by classical Spanish guitar music, “Stockhausen 2000” and the “Five Faces of Al Jarreau” all of which will be performed, for free, at 5 p.m., Sat., Aug. 3, in Bryant Park, 6th Ave. (41st St.), 582-1941. If it rains, they’ll move indoors to City Center that evening for a 7:30 performance, 130 W 56th. St. (betw. 6th & 7th Aves.).
