Saint Matthew Passion

  • Washington National Cathedral 3101 Wisconsin Avenue Northwest Washington, DC, 20016 United States (map)

Regarded as one of Bach’s masterpieces, the St. Matthew Passion tells the story of the trial and crucifixion of Jesus. Performed on Palm Sunday, a day where the Christian faith marks the entry of Jesus into Jerusalem and his journey to the cross. With acclaimed tenor Rufus Muller in the role of the Evangelist alongside the Cathedral Choir and Baroque orchestra, we invite you into the sacred space of the Cathedral for a musical and spiritual experience unlike any other.
