Available to watch for free on ETO at Home from 4 April.

One year on from the start of the Coronavirus pandemic, ETO presents a free broadcast of our 2020 production of Bach's St John Passion to kick off our 2021 digital season.

The production was filmed at Hackney Empire at the start of our tour in 2020. James Conway's staging united professional soloists and the period orchestra, the Old Street Band, with singers from the Collegium Musicum of London Chamber Choir, Hackney Singers, Hackney Choral and London Youth Boys' Choir for a distinctive reimagined performance of St John Passion.

The broadcast will be accompanied by a new documentary that reunites the production's cast to explore their experiences during the past year of lockdown.

Language: Sung in German and English with surtitles.

Recorded on 5 March 2020
