Overview

THIS IS TRANSCENDENCE

When Giuseppe Verdi’s dear friend, the 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.

Sometimes referred to as “an opera in ecclesiastical vestments” 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. Asking the grand questions of life, it takes the audience on an intense musical journey from the depths of profound despair to ecstatic hope – a transcendent work, once experienced never forgotten.

Opera Queensland is thrilled to be collaborating with Bleach Festival and the Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University to bring this music to audiences on the Gold Coast for the first time in many years.
