Beschreibung

Ballet by Mario Schröder | Music by Johann Sebastian Bach | Choreographic Premiere | Playing time ca. 2 1/2 hours | One intermission

Although the St. John Passion was conceived of as a ­concert piece, the work’s charged dramatic ­potential nearly demands that it be staged. And to celebrate the anniversary of the Reformation, Mario Schröder will imbue this monumental work with his unique ­choreographic vision. Bach’s St. John Passion was ­premiered in Leipzig’s St. Nicholas Church in 1724, ­and is one of his most significant works. It tells the story of Jesus Christ’s last, pain-filled days.
