Overwhelming! It is seldom that a Requiem is staged and no wonder given the logistics required! This time there were on stage at last 400 hundred artists: a soprano, a tenor and a baritone, five adult choirs and the LA Children's Choir, plus the Colburn Orchestra and USC Thornton Symphony, all under the baton of the famed James Conlon (who care after a matinee performance of Falstaff in Los Angeles!). The dedication of all the people who made this heavenly event possible is beyond words. The music of Benjamin Britten is not known at all in the US, and this celebration of his birth centennial was deservedly magnificent! The Latin Requiem is poignantly interspersed with verses by British poet Wilfred Owen, killed in action (WW1) at 25, one week before the armistice. The performance has really showed me that art is exquisitely beautiful also because it implies selfless dedication, with compensation a feeling of elation, the thunderous applause and a once-in-a-lifetime memory!
I had a perfect seat, mid second row, and I want to stress that it was one of, if not downright the best, Goldstar experiences so far! I wish you could provide tickets for more gems like this!
