Verdi's Requiem
  • Edinburgh International Festival

From pounding drums and blazing trumpets predicting the final judgement, to serene prayers begging for release: Verdis 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 Turins Teatro Regio in Verdis monumental masterpiece, complementing their performances of Verdis Macbeth and Puccinis La bohme in the Festival Theatre. Joining them is a handpicked cast of exceptional international soloists.
