St Matthew Passion

Sorry this event has been and gone


  • Sun 29 Mar ’15, 2:00pm – 5:20pm


Sacred Heart Cathedral, 24 Hill St, Thorndon, Wellington


All Ages

A complete performance of this masterwork directed by noted Baroque interpreter Peter Walls - featuring Richard Greager as the Evangelist and Simon Christie as Jesus, with Nicola Holt (soprano), Maaike Christie-Beekman (alto), Lachlan Craig (tenor) and David Morriss (bass), double choir (Bach Choir of Wellington), ripieno choir (Wellington Young Voices), Douglas Mews and the Chiesa Ensemble (musicians of the NZSO and Orchestra Wellington).

The work will be sung in German; a programme with translation of the aria texts and summary of the recitatives will be available.

The opportunity to hear the Passion recreated in full form is rare in New Zealand, in part because of the considerable resources and musicianship it requires. This will be a highlight of the Wellington musical year.
