Bach’s St. John Passion
October 1 @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm EDT$25 – $79
Few works evoke the dramatic intensity and impact of Bach’s Johannes-Passion, highlighting the extremes of human emotion and experience. Bach reveals his profound spirituality through powerful musical depictions of the passion drama, offering the listener some of the greatest moments to be found in his entire output. Bach brings the themes of betrayal, sacrifice, and redemption straight to the heart, placing the listener at the center of the drama. The Washington Bach Consort welcomes “impressive tenor” (The New York Times) Gene Stenger, who narrates the story in the role of the “Evangelist.”
Gene Stenger, Evangelist; Jonathon Adams, Christus; Enrico Lagasca, Pilate; Elijah McCormack, soprano; Reginald Mobley, countertenor; Jacob Perry Jr., tenor
