The choir are delighted to have been invited by English Touring Opera to take part in a performance of Bach’s St John Passion at Royal & Derngate. Following the overwhelming success of ETO’s earlier Bach tours, this evening will present the St John Passion in an immersive and semi-staged performance. Professional soloists perform with 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 the Anglican priest, journalist and broadcaster, Dr Giles Fraser and former Archbishop of Canterbury and poet, Dr Rowan Williams. The concert will be sung in German and English with English surtitles.

Full information will follow as soon as it is released.
