The Tucson Desert Song Festival isn’t just about song.

It’s about dance, too.

This weekend, Ballet Tucson will join forces with vocalist Don Sheppard and mezzo-soprano Janara Kellerman for its Winter Concert.

Sheppard will provide contemporary French music for the company’s performances of “Dances à la Francaise,” choreographed by company member Chieko Imada.

Kellerman will accompany Ballet Tucson’s performance of “Carmen,” choreographed by Ballet Master Daniel Precup. Kellerman will sing three of the opera’s most stirring — and famous — arias: the Habanera, Seguidilla and the Cards.

Also on the program is “Daphnis and Chloé,” a premiere for Ballet Tucson, with choreography reinterpreted by Ballet Tucson’s resident choreographer, Mark Schneider.

The Winter Concert is at 7:30 p.m. Saturday and 1 and 5 p.m. Sunday at the Temple of Music and Art, 330 S. Scott Ave. Tickets are $36-$42. or 1-800-838-3006.
