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!
A post-concert discussion follows in the Kennedy Center Concert Hall, with Julian Wachner and Mark Weinstein, Executive Director of the Washington National Opera.
