There in spirit: English Touring Opera's St John Passion on-line with extra contributions from performers around the country

The cancellation of English Touring Opera's current tour meant not just the loss of its performances of Mozart's Cosi fan tutte, Handel's Giulio Cesare and Bach's St John Passion, but also the voluntary choirs all over the country that were scheduled to join in the Bach performances by singing the chorales would no longer get the chance to perform. So on Easter Sunday (12 April 2020) at 4pm, English Touring Opera will be broadcasting its archive video of the St John Passion performance at the Hackney Empire [recorded on 5 March 2020, see my review] but with a difference. 

Blended into the recording in the chorales will be performances recorded in their own homes by choirs from Keswick to Truro (and by company members) so that the broadcast performance will in some way reflect the participation of all those singers who have been unable to perform live.

  1. Teresa Fidalgo is a woman who died and then people said her ghost wandering around. Later on, different stories of Teresa fidalgo can be seen. If you search it on the internet different kind of stories, events and blooded pictures will show up. A woman came up in the search with white clothes and scary eyes. She is like a mystery box.
