Requiem

A co-production with Bleach* Festival

27 April 2019

Home of the Arts (HOTA), Gold Coast


A special event and the company’s first co-production with Bleach*, Patrick Nolan will direct Requiem at HOTA on April 27, 2019.

Sometimes referred to as “an opera in ecclesiastical vestments”, Verdi’s gift for dramatic writing will be on full display in this remarkable score for almost a hundred musicians and a chorus of more than 60 singers.

Set in a ceremonial space, designed by Alex Podger (Dark Mofo and Woodford Folk Festival), with video and lighting by Mark Howett and conducted by Opera Queensland Artist in Residence Natalie Murray-Beale, Verdi’s Requiem asks the grand questions of life, taking the audience on an intense musical journey from the depths of profound despair to ecstatic hope.

Starring soloists Natalie Aroyan, Milijan Nikolajic, Rosario La Spina and Andrew Collis alongside an Opera Queensland Chorus complimented with singers from Queensland Conservatorium and the Queensland Conservatorium Symphony Orchestra, Requiem is a transcendent work, once experienced never forgotten.

Ticketing information is available on the HOTA website.
