The St. John Passion by J.S. Bach is absolutely riveting and is the closest the great composer ever came to writing an opera. Written using text mostly from Martin Luther’s German translation of the Bible, as well as poetry by Barthold Heinrich Brockes (1680-1747), it moves at break neck speed and is filled with an urgency, musical variety and intensity of affect that is unmatched in the history of sacred music. Join the Pacific Baroque Orchestra, the Vancouver Cantata Singers and a cast of international Bach specialists for this dramatic reading of one of the greatest works in the classical repertoire.
