L'Art de la Danse: The Bach Players and Mercurius Company join hands to bring audiences the graceful, moving and seductive world of French Baroque. They propel instrumental suites into motion with their newly-devised choreographies to music by Baroque composers Couperin and Rebel. With the dancers dressed up in full court and theatrical costumes, this concert is a must-see for all ages.

Have you ever wondered what it would have been like to dance a bourée or sarabande or even a minuet? This concert will reveal how wonderful these dance movements are, and at the same time, show us all too plainly how sad it is that we can only ‘bop’ today.

Baroque Dance specialist, Riccardo Barros makes a welcome return to the festival. Many people will remember him from the magnificent children’s concert in 2007, for which he successfully trained the Festival’s Youth Choir to become elegant dancers. On this occasion Barros, together with dancer Gudrun Skamletz, will showcase the beautiful movements of dance from the 17th century.

The Bach Players are known for their engaging programmes of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century music. They play on original instruments and work without a conductor.
