Helps if you speak what I think must be german. The musicians and the conductor and the soloists are superb. The costumes are elegant. I felt under dressed in jeans and a pull-over. The venue is amazingly accurate for this type of a performance...continued

The great Passions of J. S. Bach remain unparalleled in their dramatic impact and universally experienced emotional effects. Bach took the genre to new worlds of expression, incorporating the Lutheran tradition of chorales with newer, Italianate operatic elements. The result is a powerful force of rhetoric that tells the Passion story reinforced by personalized illuminations of onlookers.
