RTWCS: Verdi's Requiem
Giuseppe Verdi: Messa da Requiem
“An opera in ecclesiastical robes”
Verdi brings his genius as composer of the world’s most famous operas to this setting of the Latin funeral mass - Verdi’s mighty Requiem. Experience the astounding power of the Dies Irae - instantly recognisable - and the heart-wrenchingly tender pleading for forgiveness by a singly beautiful soprano voice in the final Libera Me.
The Royal Tunbridge Wells Choral Society return to the Assembly Hall for the first concert of their 119th season. They are joined by the RTWCS orchestra and four experienced soloists under the expert baton of musical director, Robyn Sevastos.
