Johann Sebastian Bach is one of the paragons of music history, respected by all musicians, and it's no coincidence that the global “Bach in the Subways” event was organised around his birthday. The Opera will also be joining in this year, although it's not easy to find something out of Bach's universal oeuvre that is particular suited to us and our mission. So... our solution is to play one of his secular cantatas, which can be regarded as a sort of stab at opera. Prior to our dramatic production Secular cantatas, which will make its debut at the RingFest, we'll be performing the Coffee Cantata in a concert format on the Opera House's Sphinx Terrace on Hajós Street, as our partners from the Zsidai Group serve the finest coffees to the audience.
