Broadcasting: from Friday 4 June 2021 and available during 6 month on the Operavision Platform
One of the most inspiring directors of his generation, Calixto Bieito, gives a new and disturbing insight on St John Passion. Right from the start, he brought amateur singers together to form the choir which is at the heart of the narrative: “In Bilbao, choral singing is a genuine tradition that goes back more than two centuries. (…) It was natural for me to make the choir the center of this secular, pagan and spiritual liturgy”. On this occasion, Christophe Rousset will lend his Ensemble Les Talens Lyriques to the conductor Philippe Pierlot.
