Bach & Piazzolla

Back by popular demand, Tango Boreal – bandoneonist Denis Plante and guitarist David Jacques – rejoins 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 Fugue, the performance is augmented by dramatic lighting and projected visuals, creating an experience that 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 show time to distribute the remaining tickets. As always, open seating on the hill. The show goes on rain or shine.


Produced by the Mercury Chamber Orchestra
