Bach's St John Passion is a towering masterpiece, a deeply moving and intensely dramatic recounting of Christ’s betrayal, capture, trial and death. Bach illuminates this gospel story with music that is powerful and poetic, operatic in its emotional intensity, and vividly compelling. Principal Conductor Asher Fisch directs an exceptional cast of soloists, the St George’s Cathedral Consort and WASO in a rare Perth performance of this extraordinary work.
