The Sixteen – in collaboration with Streetwise Opera – produced an abridged version of Bach’s iconic oratorio St Matthew Passion, brought powerfully to life as an immersive fully-staged opera at Campfield Market, Manchester. The cast comprised of a quartet of soloists from The Sixteen, an ensemble of instrumentalists led by The Sixteen’s violinist Sarah Sexton, and performers who have experienced homelessness from Streetwise Opera Manchester. Directed by acclaimed film-maker Penny Woolcock, the production also featured a new ‘resurrection’ finale jointly written by Streetwise Opera’s performers and celebrated composer Sir James MacMillan. This extraordinary performance was broadcast on BBC Four on Easter Sunday 2016, and received a four star review from The Guardian.
