    Brighton Dome Brighton BN1 1UG
    United Kingdom

    As Easter beckons, Brighton Festival Chorus returns to Brighton Dome for a special ‘in the round’ performance of JS Bach’s glorious St John Passion.

    First performed in Leipzig on Good Friday 1724, Bach’s powerfully meditative interpretation of the Gospel of St John is a work of startling immediacy yet subtle nuance, recreating the psychological and emotional conflict of Christ’s final days before His public trial and crucifixion.

    Bach’s dramatic vision is brought vividly to life in this intimate Proms-style performance, which takes the singers in and amongst the audience.

    Ticket holders will also be able to attend a workshop for free on Sat 21 Mar at St George’s Church, Kemptown to learn more about the St John Passion and the chorales that will be sung.
