BBC Philharmonic: St Matthew Passion on Good Friday at The Bridgewater Hall, City Centre, 14 April 2017, from £12.00 - Book now
Bach’s St Matthew Passion was first performed on Good Friday in 1727. Nearly 300 years later, this rich and profoundly personal masterpiece retains its place as the greatest Easter work in the repertoire – and on Good Friday in 2017 there will be plenty of heartfelt human drama on stage at The Bridgewater Hall. The orchestra will be joined by British baroque specialist Nicholas Kraemer, the Manchester Chamber Choir and an exceptional team of soloists for what promises to be a very powerful performance.
