Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra and Chorale
The Judas Passion | Nicholas McGegan, Conductor
Nicholas McGegan and a cast of international stars give the U.S. premiere of a groundbreaking new work written for the Philharmonia's period instrument and voices. In The Judas Passion, Scottish composer Sally Beamish and librettist David Harsent explore Judas in a more sympathetic light—offering a different perspective on the Last Supper and Jesus’ betrayer: from Judas’ sin to forgiveness and redemption. This provocative new Passion is accompanied by Telemann’s Tafelmusik.
