BACH ST. MATTHEW PASSION

CANCELLED

Overview

This performance has, regrettably, been cancelled. Please click here to learn more.

Arguably the greatest work in Western classical music, the St. Matthew Passion reflects on the central drama of the Christian religion: the trial, suffering, and death of Jesus as a redemptive act for humankind. Bach draws upon the boundless reservoir of his genius to tell this moving story. The combined forces of the H+H Orchestra, chorus, and six soloists bring this masterpiece — with its near-operatic proportions and intensity — to life, the way it was meant to be heard. Expect a deeply moving, spiritual, and authentic musical experience.
