Event Description

Resonance Works presents one of the greatest oratorios of all time, Bach’s St. John Passion. With universal themes including friendship and sacrifice, loyalty and betrayal, cruelty and compassion, Bach’s setting of scripture and poetry is a deeply human and intensely dramatic musical telling of the suffering and death of Christ.

Noted interpreter of Bach, tenor Joseph Gaines returns to Pittsburgh and to Resonance Works as the Evangelist, ten years after first performing this masterwork with conductor Maria Sensi Sellner. Pennsylvania native Joshua Jeremiah returns as Pilate and aria soloist, and newcomer Ivan Plazačić sings the role of Jesus. A cast of distinguished aria soloists including Katy Williams, Thespina Christulides, Corrie Stallings, Christina English, George Milosh, and William Ottow also serve as the core of the small chamber chorus, creating a powerful and uniquely intimate performance experience of this masterwork.

We are thrilled to be performing for the first time in the historic Heinz Memorial Chapel, which has long been associated with outstanding performances of Baroque masterworks!

About Zones:

Starting in 2018-19 all Resonance Works performances are ticketed in four zones: A, B, C, and D.  In venues that lack numbered seats, such as this one, each zone will correspond to a section of seating.  Zone A is the closest to the performers, with Zones B, C, and D progressively further away (and progressively cheaper).  In this venue, Zone C covers both the third zone on the main floor and the balcony.  To the best of our abilities, we will ensure that no seats in any zone have obstructed views.  Seating within each zone is general admission.  Your ticket will indicate the zone and that it's general admission.  It will also note a seat number, but this is simply an artifact of our ticketing system, and should be ignored.
