J.S. Bach: St. Matthew Passion

Co-production of Athens State Orchestra with Megaron – the Athens Concert Hall Organization


For every lover of Johann Sebastian Bach’s music and of music in general, St Matthew’s Passion is “sacred”, a supreme expression of Man’s progress towards the divine and as a de profundis testament to the soul and spirit at their purest and most sincere. On this occasion, the Passion will acquire an additional dimension: movement, with dance that seeks to embody its sublime musical meanings and render them more tangible, dramatic and – why not?- topical.
