From pounding drums and blazing trumpets predicting the final judgement, to serene prayers begging for release: Verdi’s Requiem is a choral blockbuster of staggering power, bringing all the drama of the opera house to the concert hall.

With his explosive energy and fearless commitment, Gianandrea Noseda is one of the most exciting conductors around today. He directs his all-Italian Chorus and Orchestra from Turin’s Teatro Regio in Verdi’s monumental masterpiece, complementing their performances of Verdi’s Macbeth and Puccini’s La bohème in the Festival Theatre. Joining them is a handpicked cast of exceptional international soloists.
