Bach’s St John Passion – London
Please call the Box Office on 01206 573948 to be added to the waiting list
Deeply inspiring and questioning in equal parts, Bach’s St John Passion is a brilliant reflection of that extraordinary gospel and a high point in Western civilisation.
English Touring Opera’s semi-staged production will be performed in the round, with our soloists and orchestra singing together with professional and community choirs including Hackney Empire Community Choir, Trinity Laban Chamber Choir, Blackheath Goes Gospel and The Royal Greenwich and Blackheath Halls Choir.
For this performance, we have commissioned new English translations of the chorales from writers of different faiths, including former Archbishop of Canterbury Dr Rowan Williams, current Archbishop of York Dr John Sentamu, Giles Fraser, author Marina Warner and Buddhist philosopher Maitreyabandhu.
