Giuseppe Verdi

Requiem

classic concert 10

Concert performance in Latin with Hungarian and English surtitles

One of the Opera's loveliest traditions is its musical observation of the All Saints/Day of the Dead holiday period with the funeral mass that has been described as "an opera in ecclesiastical robes". Giuseppe Verdi's grandiose Requiem is the sincere music of an opera composer that blends tragedy, pain, hope and in the operatic style and language characteristic of Verdi, expressed in moments of heart-wrenching intimacy and astounding choral tableaux.
