Miller Outdoor Theatre presents: Bach & Piazzolla
Back by popular demand, bandoneonist Denis Plante and guitarist David Jacques rejoin Mercury under the baton of Artistic Director Antoine Plante for a unique multimedia orchestral experience that combines the seductive tango with the perfection of J.S. Bach.
Blending the Tango Nuevo heat of Piazzolla and the serenity of counterpoint in Bach’s Art of the Fuge, the performance is augmented by tango dancers, dramatic lighting, and projected visuals of the artists performing. This unusual experience will make you dance, body and soul.
This is a ticketed event for the covered seating area. Free tickets are available (4 per person over age 16 while they last) at the Miller Outdoor Theatre box office the day of the performance between the hours of 10:30 AM-1:00 PM. If tickets remain at 1:00 PM, the box office will re-open one hour before showtime to distribute the remaining tickets. As always, open seating on the hill. The show goes on rain or shine.
Produced by the Mercury Baroque Ensemble
