Bach’s account of the crucifixion of Christ is one of the most important and intense musical documents in the history of Western culture. It is performed all over the country in the weeks leading up to Easter. This year, for the first time, we will work with Peter Dijkstra, one of the leading choir conductors of our era. We will also work with a choice selection of outstanding soloists, The Hague’s Sailor-Boys Choir and Dijkstra’s own Netherlands Chamber Choir.

Ticket sales for the ‘St Matthew Passion’ in Leiden start on 11 April 2020.
