Ballet by John Neumeier

Saint Matthew Passion

“One comes to feel that this is a community of people who have decided to enact the Passion as in a medieval mystery play. Each dancer expresses grief, doubt, questioning, or aggression so personally that each seems to have chosen his or her own role.“ Dance Magazine

Music: Johann Sebastian Bach
Choreography, Staging, Set and Costumes: John Neumeier

4 hours | 1 intermission
Part 1: 90 minutes, Part 2: 120 minutes
