Experience the drama, turbulence and supreme atmosphere of Verdi’s incredible Requiem

Gianluca Marcianó, the Hallé and the Sheffield Philharmonic Chorus are joined by a fine cast of soloists for Verdi’s remarkable Requiem. A response to the death of the great author Alessandro Manzoni – a figure Verdi revered – it is the most theatrical, agnostic and indeed popular work of its kind ever written. From the hushed beginning of its opening ‘Requiem’, to the tumultuous, apocalyptic vision of the ‘Dies Irae’ and the turbulent uncertainty of the ‘Libera Me’, Verdi brings his supreme skills as a dramatist to bear on the traditional liturgy to quite stunning effect.

A Requiem not for the dead but for the living.

Pre-concert talk with BBC Broadcaster Trisha Cooper starts at 6pm.

Performers

Gianluca Marcianó (conductor), Claire Rutter (soprano), Madeleine Shaw (mezzo-soprano), Sam Furness (tenor), David Shipley (bass), The Hallé and Sheffield Philharmonic Chorus
