Bleach* Festival and Griffith University, in partnership with HOTA, Home of the Arts, present Verdi’s Requiem by Opera Queensland, featuring the Queensland Conservatorium Symphony Orchestra.
When Verdi’s dear friend, poet and national hero Alessandro Manzoni died, he was too grief-stricken to attend the funeral, so he composed a requiem to honour his memory. What emerged out of his sorrow is one of the most powerful works for orchestra and voice ever written.
Verdi’s gift for dramatic writing is on full display in this remarkable score for almost a hundred musicians and a chorus of over sixty singers.
Verdi’s Requiem provides the perfect score for a powerful moment in time, taking the Requiem as a symbol of new beginnings for the City and the Festival. The Festival’s centrepiece production, this music is an invitation to gather and look within ourselves as the music invites us to reflect and have hope.
This is a once in a lifetime musical concert under the stars of the Gold Coast!
Tickets on sale to HOTA subscribers Thu 25 Oct, 9am until 31 Oct.
