Verdi: Requiem

‘Opera in ecclesiastical dress’, sniffed one of Verdi’s contemporaries, completely missing the point. A better assessment from a Verdi biographer: the Requiem is ‘his genius at its most concentrated’.

Having composed 26 operas, once liberated from the requirements of plot and character, Verdi poured into the Requiem everything he knew about music.

Judgement Day, with trumpets calling across the void, was never more terrifying. And the sacred liturgy is clothed in unforgettable melodies.

Verdi’s Requiem calls for a quartet of exceptional soloists, a massive chorus of singers and an orchestra capable of overpowering grandeur. This will be one of the most significant musical events of the year.

Presented in association with ICBC.
