An intense, dramatic, and expressive work, the Gospel of John places the emphasis of the Passion story on Christ’s divine origin. Nearly 300 years after its first performance on Good Friday in Leipzig, St. John remains one of the most popular and widely staged masterworks.
As of March 31, OBF performance spaces no longer require mandatory face masks or proof of vaccination. The venues do welcome and encourage patrons who wish to, to continue wearing masks while attending performances.
