Verdi Requiem, 10 Nov, Cheltenham Town Hall, Glos.
Is Verdi’s Requiem a sacred work, an opera in disguise or both? Come and judge for yourself at this performance by Cheltenham Bach Choir! Verdi’s setting of the Latin Requiem Mass began as a memorial to Rossini and many thought it too dramatic for performance in church. This sacred masterpiece speaks of heaven and hell, fire and earth, darkness and light in music that is both terrifying and a sublime hymn of praise to God. Book tickets >>
