The Thirteen performs St. John Passion

07:30 PM - 08:30 PM

Description:

Bach’s St. John Passion was originally written for the composer’s first Good Friday services in Leipzig, and it has since firmly established itself as a staple of the choral-orchestral repertoire. Yet the work’s dramatic and touching narrative demands that it be staged to bring its dramatic music to life. Timothy Nelson, called “The Future of Opera” by The New York Times, will stage this production by The Thirteen. Of this production, Nelson writes, “I look forward to making Bach’s universal themes of glorification through debasement, and the importance of community and ritual palpable and vibrant." Individual livestream tickets are available for $25 or $35 per household. Your purchased ticket gives you access to enjoy this staged oratorio from March 27 - midnight ET on April 2.
