It is a truly Dutch tradition. 'The St Matthew' can be heard every year around Easter in hundreds of sold-out concert halls and packed churches. Karel Deseure, who stole our hearts last season with his heartfelt performance of Bach's St John Passion, shines his light on this moving masterpiece with a top cast of Dutch singing talent.

Be moved by beloved arias like Erbarme dich and Aus Liebe, get chills down your spine as the choir lightens and thunders. Experience the Passion of Jesus, a tale of betrayal, loneliness, death, love and forgiveness. Emotions of all times taken to the next level by the genius and poignant music of Johann Sebastian Bach.
