Johann Sebastian Bach is one of the paragons of music history, and is respected by all musicians. It’s no coincidence, therefore, that the global “Bach in the Subways” event was organised around his birthday. The Opera will also be joining in this year, although it’s not easy to find something from Bach’s universal oeuvre that is particular suited to us and our mission. So... our solution is to play one of his secular cantatas, which can be regarded as a sort of stab at opera. A concert performance
of Coffee Cantata will be held in the Pope John Paul II Square metro station near the Erkel Theatre.
