A Mixture of Bach and Shakespeare Will Fill Your Saturday Evening with Culture
The Dallas Bach Society was formed in 1982 to promote and encourage instrumental, choral, vocal, operatic, chamber, and keyboard music composed before 1800 through live performances in Dallas and its vicinity. Since its founding, the Society, under the leadership of its founding Artistic Director, Paul Riedo (1982-1994), and its current Artistic Director, James Richman (1995-present), has been the city’s primary resource for early music performances by serious, professional musicians.
Now, you can experience the transparent joy of Purcell’s brilliant music for this Shakespearian tale never fails to delight. Oberon, Titania, and friends are brought to life in the Baroque staging with original instruments, Baroque dance and gestures.
In its 35th season, The Dallas Bach Society is the Southwest’s primary resource for Baroque music on original instruments. The Dallas Bach Society unites the finest vocalists and instrumentalists in lively and informed performances of Bach, Handel, Vivaldi, Purcell, Monteverdi, Couperin, and Schütz: all the great music from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, both masterpieces familiar to music lovers, and those awaiting their discovery.
Community interaction is an important part of life, which is why The Depot Apartments in Fort Worth, Texas is urging you to join in the all of the excitement at this event!
