  • JS BACH St Matthew Passion

English Touring Opera present the third in the company’s stagings of Bach’s masterpieces. This will be the Passion according to St Matthew – easily Bach’s most dramatic work – in a way you have never seen it. It tells in music the story of a trial, death by crucifixion, and transformation, told by witnesses whose lives have been transformed.

ETO’s extraordinary soloists will perform from memory, along with the much praised period instrument orchestra the Old Street Band, and with young singers from Chetham’s and across Greater Manchester. Charismatic conductor Jonathan Peter Kenny leads the performance, which will involve a simple, heartfelt staging.

Chorales will be sung in English. Translators include Dr Rowan Williams, Vishvapani Blomfield and Marcus du Sautoy.

20% discount for audiences aged 65+, students and under 19s

Sung in German, with English surtitles. Chorales performed in English.
