Tango heat mixed with Bach’s beauty

Back by popular demand, bandoneonist Denis Plante and guitarist David Jacques of Tango Boreal 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 Fugue, the performance will make you dance, body and soul. 

Sponsored in part by the City of Houston through the Miller Theatre Advisory Board.
