During this festival, in which you can expect a combination of jazz, tango, Glass’ minimalism and musical theatre, BOZAR puts Johann Sebastian Bach’s accomplished body of work in a contemporary light. Iveta Apkalna, Avi Avital, the Glorvigen Trio and the experimental theatre collective La Fura dels Baus are responsible for the creative approach. ‘Pure’ Bach is served up by the high-spirited Cappella Mediterranae and winner of the MAfestival, Andrea Buccarella.

    Bach For More

    Don’t expect protestant piety or a churchlike atmosphere when the iconoclasts of La Fura dels Baus take on a Bach cantata. For their production Free Bach 212, one of the highlights of our Bach Heritage festival, the world famous theatre collective add flamenco, electronics, and giant cows.
