From the composer of Aida, La Traviata, and Rigoletto comes a work every bit as dramatic and intense as those monumental operas. The terrifying Dies irae and thrilling Santus; the sorrowful Lacrymosa and the reassurance of Libera me: Guiseppe Verdi’s Requiem takes us on a journey of unparalleled emotional breadth and depth. Verdi conducted the premiere of Requiem, which included female singers despite the antipathy of the Roman Catholic Church. Following the same liturgical text as Mozart, Faure, and Durufle, Verdi’s Requiem is one of the choral repertoire’s most-performed pieces. The Peterborough Singers’ production features a stellar cast of four renowned Canadian soloists, a double choir, the orchestral sounds of Ian Sadler on the pipe organ and an all-star twelve piece brass orchestra. Join us and raise the roof for our season finale.
