An epic PASSIO

A dramatic staging of PASSIO

Monday, 20 March, 2017

Great concert snippets and critical commentary from RNZ Concert's review of PASSIO. The conversation continues....

Audiences were treated to an epic staging of Jack Body's PASSIO on Sunday as part of the 2017 Auckland Arts Festival. Invited to meander between orchestra, choir and soloists, a surround sound experience was created. Initially this generated amused and shy grins, at the end nearly everyone embarked on their own musical pilgramage through the Town Hall stalls and when the concert finished the applause didn't seem to end. Audiences left enthralled and engaged. A complete recording of the concert will be published by Radio New Zealand Concert and a video will be available through SOUNZ at a later stage.
