Wayne Tigges, bass </p> <p>One of the world’s greatest choral works, Verdi’s magnificent, operatic Requiem was an immediate and spectacular success at its first performance in 1874. Its overwhelming forces—some tender, some terrifying—are a monument to Verdi’s mastery of the sung word. Join The Washington Chorus and Orchestra with world-class soloists for a performance Verdi’s Requiem you won’t forget! </p> <p>A post-concert discussion follows in the Kennedy Center Concert Hall, with Julian Wachner and Mark Weinstein, Executive Director of the Washington National Opera. </p>
