Karel Deseure, winner of the Schaunard Award (opera conductor of the year 2018), assembled a variety of top soloists around him to strengthen his own vision of this timeless masterpiece. Be moved by immortal aria’s like Erbarme dich and Aus Liebe. Let Sind Blitze sind Donner touch your innermost core. Experience the passion of the Christ, a story of treason, loneliness, death, love, and forgiveness. Timeless emotions, lifted to the highest qualities by the genius and moving music by Johann Sebastian Bach.
To keep waiting times down to an absolute minimum, this concert will make use of the 'wallet-less intermission' concept. Visitors are asked to pay for their intermission drink in advance when ordering their tickets: the perfect solution for enjoying your company and your drink as long as possible!
