Saint Matthew Passion
SAINT MATTHEW PASSION
To music lovers, Easter is the awaited period for the Saint Matthew Passion – an oratorio that has become legendary. During the 18th century, the Church placed music at the centre of Good Friday celebrations, and the profound fervour of Johann Sebastian Bach is fully expressed in this monumental piece. Leonardo García Alarcón choses to perform this poignant work in a spectacular configuration of 80 instrumentalists and singers on stage.
