Composed in 1727 by Johann Sebastian Bach, St. Matthew Passion is considered one of the most famous and enthralling operas. It is a gripping tale of the last days of the life of Jesus Christ and his impending crucifixion, and is regarded by scholars as "... the single greatest masterpiece of western sacred music...". Featuring dancers from the Hamburg Ballet in Germany, along with vocal soloists and LA's own orchestra and chorus, this will be a performance you won't want to miss. 

Tickets are on sale now on the LA Opera website.
