Verdi: Messa da Requiem

Autumn Festival 2022

After intensive discussions with conductor Teodor Currentzis, artistic director Benedikt Stampa replaces the two concert performances of the Wagner opera "Tristan und Isolde" planned for November 17 and 20 with performances of the great "Messa da Requiem," the "Verdi Requiem" with choir, soloists and orchestra.

In recent weeks, it has become apparent that the originally planned performance of the concert version of Tristan can no longer take place due to the fact that some of the singers are no longer fully available for the solo parts.

"In intensive discussions with Teodor Currentzis and his ensemble as well as other organizers, we looked for an alternative of comparable value and, in view of the current situation in Ukraine, were unanimous in the conviction that we would not select an-other opera, but a piece more suited to the situation“, said Artistic Director Benedikt Stampa. "The Verdi Requiem is an outstanding work that can also be viewed as a statement in the context of the current situation. "
