Bach’s “St John Passion” with Simon Rattle and Peter Sellars

Following their acclaimed performance of Bach’s St Matthew Passion, Simon Rattle and Peter Sellars also presented a staged version of the St John Passion in February 2014. The concert, which struck a balance between contemplation and dramatic power, received standing ovations and was judged by the press to be a “new Easter miracle”. Mark Padmore as the Evangelist heads a spectacular ensemble of singers.
