ETO - St John PassionFri 29 May 2020
7.30pm, at Exeter Cathedral
Following the overwhelming success of English Touring Opera’s performances of the great choral masterpieces of J. S. Bach, ETO will present St John Passion, in an immersive and semi-staged performance. Professional soloists perform with more than 30 choirs from across the country as well as period orchestra the Old Street Band for these distinctive and reimagined performances.
ETO have commissioned new translations of the Chorales from theological and literary figures including Anglican priest, journalist and broadcaster Dr Giles Anthony Fraser and former Archbishop of Canterbury and poet Dr Rowan Williams.
