JENA SCHREIER WEIKL SHIRAI NEUMEIER

This release is a live recording from Festspielhaus Baden-Baden, 2005. Johann Sebastian Bach’s St. Matthew’s Passion is the monumental composer’s longest and most extensive work, and has been adapted into a ballet by John Neumeier. Providing the music in this performance is the St. Michaelis Orchester, conducted by Gunter Jena. “One’s imagination can feast on this ballet and its implications, one can become personally involved, but it is difficult if not impossible to imagine any other company performing it. It is the unique expression of this man and this company he has forged.” (Dance Magazine)
