The idea kind of reminds me of "Springtime for Hitler".

I've read about Peter Sellars in the liner notes to Bach Cantatas with
Lorraine Hunt. He staged cantatas BWV 82 and 199 in a modern hospital
setting. No doubt, the music and performance are quite moving, but
unfortunately, I can't get past the poor engineering of the recording.
Hunt's voice is recorded way too close.
