Verdi's Requiem has held audiences in its spell since its 1874 premiere, for he uses all his operatic skills (La traviata, Aida, Rigoletto) to give the Latin Requiem Mass an electrifyingly theatrical setting. This staged version by the Merry Opera Company brings the audience deep into the music: twelve powerful classical voices whispering prayers for salvation and triumphantly praising God.
From the director who staged Merry Opera's acclaimed production of Handel's Messiah
