From the resonant expectancy of its prologue to the aching hope of its final chorale, the momentum of the St John Passion sweeps up devoted followers and curious onlookers alike. Bach makes his deeply-felt retelling of Jesus’ crucifixion both tangible and transcendent: upon one man’s death hinges the world’s redemption; love and victory in the midst
of agony.

Stephen Layton has been conducting annual performances of this work with his own choir Polyphony for well over a decade, his interpretations praised for their clarity and intensity. This year, a week before Easter, he directs the ASO along with favourite Australian soprano Sara Macliver, a cast of talented young British voices and our own world-class Adelaide Chamber Singers.
