The Passion is our landmark site-specific opera in collaboration with The Sixteen and in association with HOME, filmed at Manchester's Campfield Market in 2016.

Directed by Penny Woolcock, an abridged version of Bach’s iconic oratorio St Matthew Passion is brought to life as a fully-staged opera alongside a new ‘resurrection’ finale written by Streetwise Opera’s performers and celebrated composer Sir James MacMillan. Don't miss this 5 star ‘beautiful retelling of the most enduring story of redemption’ following the last two days of Jesus’s life.


Review taken from The Times. The production was filmed by The Space which is supported by Arts Council England and the BBC, and was broadcast on BBC Four in March 2016.
