Reserve your tickets now for a performance of Bach's St. Matthew Passion in Rotterdam. A unique opportunity to experience this masterful composition in a historic and atmospheric location.

In the Netherlands, the St. Matthew Passion is the favorite composition during the Passion time and is anchored in our culture. The Bach Choir & Orchestra of the Netherlands is uniquely able to convey symbolism, emotion and comfort to you as a listener.

Johann Sebastian Bach devised a unique arrangement for his magnus opus: two choirs and two orchestras. The composition tells the chronological story of Christ's passion in which symbolism plays a major role. Bach uses all kinds of musical means to achieve rich effects. He wrote specific roles for both instruments and soloists. The narrator: the evangelist, takes you through the story. He is alternated by the choir, on the one hand intimate and on the other overwhelming. Every soloist has their own emotional dimension such as love, sorrow, comfort, contemplation.

The musicians of The Bach Orchestra play authentic instruments from Bach's time and The Bach Choir is praised for its dynamic and expressive sound. The (inter)national soloists have enormous dedication, which will be audible and visible during the masterful arias. Like no other, they are able to convey symbolism, emotion and comfort to you as a listener.
