City Choir Dunedin presents the magnificent Bach masterpiece, "St John Passion". It is a haunting and dramatic musical depiction of the Easter story and has been revered since it was first performed in 1724. Under the baton of conductor David Burchell, the Choir is accompanied by the Dunedin Symphony Orchestra and will showcase six wonderful soloists.

A narrator, the Evangelist, has a key role throughout the Passion, with the choir taking various roles of the people, the Jews, and the crowd. The action is heightened by some of the most emotionally intense arias every composed. Exquisite chorales of radiant music are scattered throughout, thus giving rise to rich contrasts and expressive musical and spiritual power. This promises to be a performance of profound beauty that will linger in your heart long after the final note was heard.
