A New Wonder: The Leading Ladies of Baroque Dance and Music

Friday, October 06, 2023

07:30 PM - 09:30 PM

Grisham Hall at St. Anne’s Belfield Greenway Rise Campus

2132 Ivy Road, Charlottesville, VA, USA

Baroque dancer and choreographer Julia Bengtsson brings four “leading ladies” of the baroque era to life, recreating historical choreographies once danced by French ballerina Marie-Thérèse de Subligny and noted English dancer and actress Hester Santlow, and creating new choreographies for the music of Élisabeth Jacquet de La Guerre. The centerpiece of the program is Bengtsson’s choreography to J.S. Bach’s Cello Suite No. 5, which provides a window into the life of his second wife, Anna Magdalena Bach. Famous Dutch cellist Jaap ter Linden, an early pioneer of historical performance, is featured in this performance. EMAP artistic director David McCormick will play baroque violin and Cameron Welke will play theorbo and other historical plucked instruments.

Tickets are available online and at the door.
