Messa da Requiem

4 min

A permanent feature in the concert repertoire, Giuseppe Verdi’s Messa da Requiem takes to the stage in a sensational co-production of the Finnish National Opera and Ballet. This masterpiece, which was composed to Catholic liturgy in Latin, is just as captivatingly dramatic as Verdi’s operas. Choreographer Christian Spuck combines the oratoric score for four solo singers and a large chorus and orchestra to a visual world of dance, abstract scenes, space, and light.

Chief Conductor Hannu Lintu, Mezzosoprano Tuija Knihtilä and Soloist Dancer Tuukka Piitulainen talk about the work as they prepare fro the premiere.
