About the Event

In this highly‐anticipated concert, hea masterworks of music at Bologna's atmospheric Basilica dei Santi Bartolomeo e Gaetano.

In this unprecedented Passion of Christ, the evocative power of the Gospel story is fully blended with the changing expressive intensity of Gesualdo's responsories.
