SFEMS presents: Archetti & Dance Through Time—Forbidden Lust and Passion in the Court

March 3 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm PST

$20 – $55

What is forbidden is often the most desirable. The dances and rhythms of its New World colonies created a sensation in the Spanish courts, and were eventually banned for their perceived lasciviousness. In this captivating collaboration, Dance Through Time and Archetti Baroque Strings trace the saga of dances such as the chaconnazarabanda, and folias from their indigenous beginnings to the courts of France and beyond, featuring music from Diego Ortiz, Gaspar Sanz, Tarquinio Merula, Antonio Vivaldi, Marin Marais, and Jean-Baptiste Lully.
