A Fully Staged, Site-Specific Production in the Celebrated St. Peter-in-Chains Cathedral
The stage action was ingeniously interwoven with the music to give the Passion contemporary resonance."
"The production gave the music a powerful new dimension .... The three-hour production flew by."
"Extremely powerful ... Brilliant ... Monumental."
-- Mary Ellen Hutton, Music in Cincinnati
"I've tried to take a page from Bach's book to make the story relevant and immediate for our audience ... Bach was really writing for a German-speaking audience that was wrestling with the relationship between individual faith and religious institutions. And I think that's just as much a relevant concern for Cincinnati audiences in 2011."
