THE HILLS SINGERS AND THE ENGLISH TOURING OPERA
The Hills Singers are delighted to be collaborating with the English Touring Opera in this famous composition by Johann Sebastian Bach. The ETO will provide the soloists performing the roles of the Evangelist, Jesus and the biblical characters, and singing the arias. These soloists will also sing in some of the choral sections. The Hills Singers will be singing the major choruses and nearly all the chorales. The work will be principally performed in German, with suitable surtitles, but the chorales will be sung in English, to texts created for the ETO’s performances of this Passion across England.
The performance will be accompanied by the period instrument orchestra, the Old Street Band, and directed by Jonathan Peter Kenny.
