Hackers attack Bach’s Christmas Oratorio

A performance of the great choral masterpiece at the Tirol Festival was twice disrupted by external manipulation of the lighting system. The music director, Gustav Kuhn, stopped the concert and apologised to the audience.

The Festival says its systems were hacked and has called in the police.

  • JA! I was kind of hoping a rapper showed up at some point….(or came down from the ceiling or something) to make the Oratorio more ‘accessible’ and ‘modern’ for young audiences….

  • Austrian catholics from the mountains, whom nobody told that the 30 year war was ended with a peace treaty in 1648, trying to disrupt the performance of a protestant’s composition?
