APOLLO'S SINGERS

Bursting out of the gates from the agitated opening chorus, this is Bach’s most dramatic and theatrical oratorio. In Jeannette Sorrell’s acclaimed interpretation, true singer-actors perform the character roles from memory, while the renowned Apollo’s Singers evoke the wild mob with fierce intensity. A world-class array of soloists joins Sorrell and AF, taking the program to New York following local concerts.

Sung in German with projected English supertitles.
