Bach wrote the St Matthew Passion when he was Cantor of the Thomanerchor, so the ultimate account of this masterpiece will be assured in Symphony Hall’s 21st Anniversary Festival. Only fourteen cantors later, one of the world’s most revered choirs reaches its own remarkable 800th anniversary.
Sung in German with English surtitles.
Please note surtitles may not be visible from every seat. Please check when booking.
