English Touring Opera
Conductor: Jonathan Peter Kenny
Bach St Matthew Passion
English Touring Opera present the third in the company’s stagings of Bach’s masterpieces. This will be the Passion according to St Matthew – easily Bach’s most dramatic work – in a way you have never seen it. The music tells the story of a trial, death by crucifixion, and transformation, told by witnesses whose lives have been transformed.
ETO’s soloists will perform alongside the critically acclaimed period instrument orchestra, the Old Street Band. Conductor Jonathan Peter Kenny leads the performance, which will involve a simple, heartfelt staging.
Sung in German and English
N.B. English surtitles tbc
Running time: approx. 2 hours 55 mins including interval
