But that doesn't stop him from placing Leipzig's best-known choirmaster at the heart of his production. <P>Opening a three-part ballet evening which premiered on May 20, JSB stands in splendid isolation at center stage in the Semper Opera, dressed to the nines in a Baroque frock coat and a long wig, looking a bit like the Sun King preparing to dance. The Semper's ballet director, Vladimir Derevianko himself, has the honor of lending Bach his imposing figure.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><BR><A HREF="{F1B72E23-3783-11D4-A3AA-009027BA%322E4}&doc={F25E3493-5458-11D5-A3B5-009027BA22E4}" TARGET=_blank><B>More...</B></A>
