The Newberry Consort’s intrepid band of early-music aficionados unpacks rarely performed music from the 13th–18th centuries, drawn from the Newberry Library’s extensive collections. Les Caractères de la Danse recreates 18th-century entertainment with the help of renowned baroque dancers Paige Whitley-Bauguess and Thomas Baird, who perform a series of period dances while the ensemble’s violin, harpsichord, and vocalists conjure a jovial mood. In a performance hailed by critics from New York to London, the dancers take on a series of 18th-century personas—the shepherd, the nymph, the sailor, and the wealthy wig baron, made obsolete by the bald coal magnates of the Industrial era.
