A world premiere event! Situated in the historical musical legacy of Bach’s St. Matthew and St. John Passions, The Passion of Yeshua creates space for voices traditionally silent/silenced in retellings of the Biblical narrative. Drawing from Messianic texts, and specifically highlighting the voices of Mary, Mother of Jesus, and Mary Magdalene, the text – presented in both Hebrew and English – brings the last twelve hours of Jesus’ life back to its Jewish origins. Conducted by JoAnn Falletta.
This event supported by a generous grants from the Nils and Jewel Hult Endowment – Arts Foundation of Western Oregon Fund of the Oregon Community Foundation and Oregon Cultural Trust
