SingFest has brought the latest Bach im Theater production: St. John Passion to the Thuringia Bach Festival on 9 April 2022, 18:00 at Erfurt - Theater Erfurt.

Thuringia Bach Festival 
OPENING CONCERT: 
Bach’s St John Passion as a show trial


"What is truth?" says Pilate to Jesus in the mock trial to condemn Jesus to death. This sentence, two millennia old, is more relevant today than ever before and gives Bach's St John Passion an unexpected socio-political dimension. 


The staged performance by SingFest, lautten compagney BERLIN, and the Thüringer Bachwochen seeks answers to the question of individual truth and freedom in the face of an overpowering state apparatus in a contemporary visual language.
