Messiah Lutheran to present 'The Passion of the Christ'

Messiah Lutheran Church will present "The Passion of Christ" on Palm Sunday, April 14, at 3 p.m., at the church at 2691 N.E. Pine Island Road, one mile west of U.S. 41, in Cape Coral.

The church is presenting Barthold Heinrich Brockes' Passion, set to the music of George Frideric Handel. Brockes was an influential German poet to reworked the traditional form of a Passion oratorio, adding reflective and descriptive poetry, sometimes of a highly-wrought and emotional kind into the texture of his Passion.

Brockes' Passion premiered in Hamburg in 1719 and Messiah Lutheran's presentation marks its 300th anniversary year.
