Bach’s St. Matthew Passion: Devotion, Betrayal & Redemption

September 22 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm EDT

$35 – $99

The Saint Matthew Passion is considered by Bach enthusiasts and aficionados alike to be the composer’s greatest surviving work. Others would argue that it’s the finest composition ever produced in western music. Among a list of unrivaled qualities, Bach is remembered as a great architect of musical form, and his Matthew Passion, taken as a whole, evinces a meticulous formal symmetry in addition to being a work of deepest emotional expression in all of its minutest detail. Both performers and audiences are profoundly affected by this work long after first experiencing it. The Washington Bach Consort performs this epic drama once every three seasons, so with an all-star cast, you won’t want to miss this performance!
