WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Renowned for his highly original takes on operatic works, Jonathan Miller draws out the full magnificence and drama of Bach's final and most revered Passion. Sung in English and pared down to its glorious essentials, his singers--casually dressed--are placed with the musicians in the round, granting the music an undeniable immediacy. One of the most frequently performed and recorded works of J.S. Bach, the St. Matthew Passion has been a highlight of concert seasons and festivals around the world for more than 150 years. Featuring original baroque instrumentation, Miller's stripped down production--without sets or costumes, and with minimal props--peels away traditional performance trappings and allows the work's core words, passion, and humanity to emerge. In an unprecedented occurrence, BAM brings back this incomparable production which has delighted audiences in its previous sold-out runs. With a cast comprising many returning members, Miller again strips away the traditional performance conventions of this sacred work, allowing us to confront the emotion and humanity at the heart of this Passion.
