Bach Society adds ballet to Vivaldi classic


Members of the SABS Orchestra, led by Tucson Symphony Orchestra concertmaster Lauren Roth, will be matched with a 12-member dance ensemble selected by Bowman (“Autumn”) and Hancock (“Summer”) — who are two of the four choreographers sharing those seasons. Joining them are guest choreographers Tamara Dyke-Compton (“Spring”) and Chris Compton(“Winter”).


“The dance will be contemporary ballet,” Hancock said, “with each choreographer blending different elements, using a different dance language, and interpreting the music in a different way.”

All the collaborating artists agree their emphasis will be on the music and the movement, enhanced by the lighting design of Don Fox, who did the lighting for Arizona Onstage Productions’ recent “Les Miserables.”
