The seats in the balcony at the church are close together, so if you have long legs, try to sit downstairs where the pews are comfortably spaced.

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.

About the Ticket Supplier: American Bach Soloists

Named "the best American specialists in early music" by The Washington Post, the American Bach Soloists (ABS) was founded in 1989 with the mission of introducing contemporary audiences to the cantatas of Johann Sebastian Bach through historically informed performances. Under the leadership of cofounder and music director Jeffrey Thomas--named "a superstar among oratorio tenors" by The Wall Street Journal--the ensemble has achieved its vision of assembling the world's finest vocalists and period-instrument performers to bring this brilliant music to life.
