Too grief-stricken to attend the funeral of Italian poet and novelist Alessandro Manzoni, Giuseppe Verdi composed a memorial in the form of a requiem to honor his memory. Created for four soloists, double choir and orchestra, this masterpiece features vigorous rhythms, sublime melodies, and dramatic contrasts to express profound loss, fear and ultimately hope and joy.

This presentation will be uniquely distinguished from other versions of Verdi’s Requiem by the full professional forces of HGO including the 180 members of the magnificent Houston Grand Opera Orchestra and Chorus.
