Staged version of St John Passion

Johan Christensson, Jakob Högström, Ivonne Fuchs, Hannah Holgersson and Erik Arnelöf

The Passion story comes very clear and close when you experience it in your own language and in a staged and visual version.

Rehearsal of St John Passion at Uppenbarelsekyrkan, Saltsjöbaden. Soloists are from the top and left: Johan Christensson, Jakob Högström, Erik Arnelöf, Hannah Holgersson and Ivonne Fuchs.

Yesterday was that kind of moment, a soulful and beautiful presence of the Passion context and message through St John Passion by J S Bach (Johannespassionen). I am very proud to be part of this production, surrounded with fantastic co-musicians, co-singers and soloists!

Performing were: Erik Arnelöf (Jesus), Johan Christensson (evangelist and director), Jakob Högström (Pilatus), Hannah Holgersson (soprano), Ivonne Fuchs (alto), Saltsjöbadens Kyrkokör, Euterpe Chamber Choir, Stockholms Bachsällskap, Katja Själander (conductor), Annika Treborg Wennerström (conductor), Claes-Otto Hammarlund (Swedish lyrics).
