Ballet Victoria teams up with Juno Award-winning rocker Tal Bachman this weekend for three rollicking shows of dance and music at the McPherson Playhouse.
Ballet Rocks features rock hits by the greats through the decades, as well as original material, all played by Bachman and his band; and choreographed dance numbers by four Royal Winnipeg Ballet alumni, one of whom is Ballet Victoria artistic director Paul Destrooper.
Bachman and company will reel off songs by such noted artists as Roy Orbison, the Kinks, Queen, The Police, Pink Floyd, Christina Aguilera, The Black Keys and more, plus the Canadian rocker’s smash hit “She’s so High” and a new release.
Other choreographers include Gerard Théoret, Philippe-Alexandre Jacques and the late Norbert Vesak.
Tickets are selling fast for the Friday and Saturday night (7:30 p.m.) and Sunday afternoon (2 p.m.) shows, but seats remain. Visit rmts.bc.ca online to find them, or call 250-386-6121.
