St. John Passion

  • Fitters' Workshop 11 Wentworth Avenue Kingston, ACT, 2604 Australia (map)

Concert 10
The Canberra Times PRESENTS

Bach never wrote an opera but realised the perfect music drama with his superlative Passion according to John. First performed in 1724, the work propels the drama through a vivid narration of the Evangelist and inspired musical dialogue between the main characters offset by reflective chorales and memorable arias. Led by Andrew Goodwin as Evangelist and Jeremy Kleeman as Jesus, this superb ensemble of singers and musicians are directed by Korneel Bernolet.  

A cry from the soul. Bach’s matchless music drama from 1724.
