Apollo's Fire performs J.S. Bach's St. John Passion
From its roiling opening chorus to its compelling conclusion, J.S. Bach’s acclaimed St. John Passion, BWV 244, chronicles the final days of Jesus.
“Impassioned singing and playing” brings Bach’s score to life “with contemporary immediacy” (Opera News) in this tour de force, performed by an international cast of singer-actors and the renowned Apollo’s Singers chorus. Conducted by Jeannette Sorrel.
