Apollo’s Fire Baroque Orchestra and Chorus

3:00 pm - 6:00 pm



“Sorrell led a revelatory performance, with impassioned singing and playing bringing Bach’s score to life with contemporary immediacy.” – Opera News

Apollo’s Fire and conductor Jeannette Sorrell bring their distinctive fire and passion to J.S. Bach’s most theatrical oratorio, the St. John Passion. Bursting out of the starting gates from the agitated opening chorus, the dramatic events of Jesus’ final days unfold with compelling storytelling. An international cast of singer-actors brings the characters to life, while the acclaimed chorus Apollo’s Singers evoke the wild mob with fierce intensity. First performed on a Good Friday nearly 300 years ago, the Passion arrives at The Center just two weeks before Easter of 2016.
