The Verdi Requiem is tumultuous, tortured, terrifying, spectacularly theatrical and possibly the greatest "opera" Verdi ever wrote!

Composed in memory of Italy’s national literary hero, Alessandro Manzoni, Verdi’s Requiem was premiered in 1874 at the Cathedral of St. Mark in Milan. Because of the church’s strict no-applause policy, Verdi was unsure of the public’s reaction to the work until its performance a few days later at the La Scala Opera House, when it received a thunderous, prolonged ovation.

Since then, his Requiem has become a staple of the choral repertoire. From whispered lamentations to the trumpeting call of Judgment Day, Verdi’s dramatic interpretation of the Latin mass for the dead will thrill audiences at Walt Disney Concert Hall with virtuosic performances by four world-class soloists, full orchestra and the Los Angeles Master Chorale.
