Additional Information

Renowned composer Richard Danielpour's 100-minute oratorio The Passion of Yeshua is an epic work featuring the school’s signature orchestra, the UCLA Philharmonia, and 120 immensely talented singers from the UCLA Choral Studies Program. The work, situated in the historical musical legacy of Bach’s St. Matthew Passion, sets out to depict the last 12 hours of the life of Jesus of Nazareth. Presented in both English and Hebrew, Yeshua grew out of the composer’s rich heritage of both Jewish and Christian traditions. With special guest artists Hila Plitmann, soprano; Amanda Lynn Bottoms, mezzo-soprano; Timothy Fallon, tenor; Michael Dean, bass-baritone; Matthew Worth, baritone. Conducted by Neal Stulberg.
