The Bach Festival returns to Leipzig from 14 to 23 June 2013, this year with the theme of 'Vita Christi'. Leipzig is the perfect venue for such a festival because it is home to the St. Thomas choir as well as many sites associated with Bach. The extensive programme reflects the diversity of Bach's works and highlights his connection to the music city of Leipzig. It places emphasis not only on theatre and music but also on the subject of religion. The wider programme includes other events such as 'BACHmosphäre' and the family programme 'b@ch für uns'.
