Part of: On Stage

The government have advised that, whilst stopping short of forcing theatres and cinemas to close, people should stay away, and so Storyhouse will be temporarily closed from Tuesday 17 March. We are not yet sure how long this will be for, but this does affect a number of events, shows and screenings.

St John Passion has been cancelled.

Remember to stay safe and look after each other.

Following the overwhelming success of ETO’s performances of the great choral masterpieces of J. S. Bach, ETO will present St John Passion, in an immersive and semi-staged performance this spring. Professional soloists perform with more than 30 choirs from across the country as well as period orchestra, the Old Street Band, for these distinctive and reimagined performances.

ETO have commissioned new translations of the Chorales from theological and literary figures including the Anglican priest, journalist and broadcaster, Dr Giles Anthony Fraser and former Archbishop of Canterbury and poet, Dr Rowan Williams.
