A trailer for the world premiere of The Passion, a landmark site-specific production for Easter 2016 by The Sixteen and award-winning charity Streetwise Opera, in association with Manchester’s international centre for contemporary visual art, theatre and film, HOME.

This extraordinary new opera comprises Bach’s iconic oratorio St Matthew Passion and a new ‘resurrection’ finale which has been jointly written by Streetwise Opera’s performers and celebrated composer Sir James MacMillan.
