Théâtre du Châtelet

Calixto Bieito (director)

Conversations | Bach

Bach's seminal work of sacred art paints a monumental fresco of life's journey to redemption. Calixto Bieito, one of the most exciting directors of his generation, directs this dramatised oratorio. With the help of an excellent cast, the period orchestra Les Talens Lyriques and a group of amateur singers which form the chorus at the heart of the narrative, he leads us into dialogue with this work today to confront pain and death.

St John Passion - Watch the full performance on OperaVision from 4 June to 4 December 2021.
