Britten's War Requiem

A profoundly moving plea for peace, Daniel Harding conducts Britten’s soul-searching pacifist masterpiece.

See times and book tickets

A passionate outcry against man’s inhumanity to man, Britten’s War Requiem is a profoundly moving plea for peace, contrasting shattering anti-war poetry by Wilfred Owen with the timeless ritual of the Latin mass for the dead.

It’s also an unforgettable musical experience, overwhelmingly powerful in its roof-raising fury from gargantuan forces, yet poignantly intimate in its stories of sacrifice and loss. With an international trio of soloists and the choral might of the Edinburgh Festival Chorus, Daniel Harding concludes his Orchestre de Paris residency with Britten’s soul-searching pacifist masterpiece.
