Following the overwhelming success of ETO’s performances of the great choral masterpieces of J.S. Bach, ETO will present St John Passion, in an immersive and semi-staged performance this spring.
Professional soloists perform with more than 30 choirs from across the country as well as period orchestra, the Old Street Band, for these distinctive and re-imagined performances.
ETO have commissioned new translations of the Chorales from theological and literary figures including the Anglican priest, journalist and broadcaster, Dr Giles Anthony Fraser and former Archbishop of Canterbury and poet, Dr Rowan Williams.
Sung in English and German, with English surtitles.
