Take a marvelous, and rare, journey back to the 18th century on Wednesday, June 6, when the Berkeley Festival presents 300 Years On: A Dance Collection from the Reign of Louis XIV. While the internationally known Baroque ensemble Musica Pacifica plays music from period operas by Campra, Marais, and Destouches, costumed dancers led by period-dance expert Linda Tomko perform theatrical and ballroom dances recorded in the Nouveau Recueil de Dance, a collection of choreography published circa 1713. Originally performed in Louis' court and at the Paris Opera, this time around the gigues, sarabandes, and rigaudons will be danced at the First Congregational Church (2345 Channing Way, Berkeley). The program also includes instrumental music by Couperin and Rameau, as well as one of Telemann's "Paris Quartets." 8 p.m., $25-$45. 510-642-9988 or
