First performance of “The Passion” by Rafał Kłoczko

St John’s Centre, 05-03-2016

First performance of “The Passion” by Rafał Kłoczko The composition, the libretto for which was written by Maja Baczyńska, is an attempt to look at the Passion from the perspective of the people who found themselves by Jesus' side in His last way. The principal character is the Mother, whose love and suffering are the most intense, although the disciples are also noteworthy. Peter's dilemmas, John's deep faith and the tragic character of Judas are vividly depicted using word and sound. The lyrical language enriched with poems by Rev. Jan Twardowski makes the listeners to reflect on the sense of suffering and enables them to identify with different attitudes that can be taken by a mere helpless observer of the events leading up to the inevitable death of a loved one. The whole is enhanced by incredible music, emphasising the universal message and leaving a lasting impression on the listener. more
