Experience a festive cantata in 3D

Bach wrote exquisite cantatas for the court chapel, in Weimar, where the musicians performed on a balcony high above the duke. That chapel, with its unique acoustics, burned down in 1774 and was never rebuilt. Until now that is, all thanks to virtual reality. A shipping container in front of the Concertgebouw's main entrance becomes a veritable 'Himmelsburg'.
