This week the Bolshoi Theatre presents the performances of the International Opera Festival d'Aix-en-Provence, which is considered to be one of the leading European opera forums.

April, 25-26 you can watch "Trauernacht", a stage performance of J.S. Bach cantatas staged by the leading British director at work today Katie Mitchell on the New stage.

Trauernacht is a modern spiritual drama about the life path and the inevitability of the end. On the stage, there are five performers who are associated with members of the same family. They embody different emotional reactions: torment and trembling, painful doubts, obedience, and, finally, solace.

"What I think is very special about Bach is that many people who are not Christian find that his music is soothing. In a certain way, my production of Trauernacht wonders why this music is still so important today," declared Katie Mitchell to the French newspaper Libération on the 19th of June, 2014.
