Bach played at speed-metal tempo: check. Tap dancers sweating buckets: check. Side story about Mozart in a comedic love triangle: check. This is The Bach and Wing — Live Classical Music Tap Dance Extravaganza, the latest from Open Classical. They’re the mad classical geniuses who brought you amplified chamber music concerts and a comedy Halloween show with decomposing Beethoven and Mozart. The Bach and Wing combines theater, tap dance and popular live classical music tunes. It’s ambitious. It’s risky. It’s fun to watch. If you need more reasons to see it, just go to NorthPark and shove Divergent into your entertainment holes. I can’t help you. The Bach and Wing happens at 8 p.m. Saturday in the Latino Cultural Center, 2600 Live Oak St. Tickets are $20 in advance at openclassical.org.
