Bayou Theater: Mercury Chamber Orchestra: Bach’s Coffee Cantata
February 9, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
As prolific as he was, Bach never wrote an opera. In fact, it’s the only genre of his day to which he contributed nothing. That’s why his Coffee Cantata is a treat – it’s as close as we get to hearing what an opera by Bach might be like. Afterwards, enjoy a selection from his famous Orchestral Suites – all on instruments that recreate the kinds of sounds Bach worked with.
