“St. Matthew Passion” in Lucerne and London

Peter Sellars’ staging of the St. Matthew Passion is one of the greatest successes of the Rattle era with the Berliner Philharmoniker. In 2014, the production was seen in Lucerne and at the London Proms. In addition, Sir Simon and his orchestra appeared at the Salzburg Festival.
