And you must suffer/St John Passion

The Passions by Johann Sebastian BACH continue to fascinate Western audiences which is why the KLARAFESTIVAL, which this year is focusing on the themes of religion and spirituality, as well as their role – positive or negative – in society, decided to showcase this new musical theatre production. Producer Pierre AUDI intersperses the singers’ performances with images from the Via Crucis by Belgian plastic artist Wim DELVOYE. Belgian Baroque orchestra B’Rock will be accompanied by the NFM Wrocław Philharmonic Choir conducted by Agnieszka FRANKÓW-ŻELAZNY, Music Curator for Wrocław 2016.
