OSO: The Chasewines Masterworks II - Requiem

Of all the musical settings of the Latin Mass for the Dead, Verdi’s ‘Requiem’ is the most iconic. By turns dramatically terrifying and transcendent, it is often called ‘an opera in disguise’. With four of Canada’s leading operatic soloists, a massed choir of 150 voices and the full power of the OSO, this performance will deliver an exhilarating experience. November 2018 marks the centenary of Armistice Day and we commemorate this historical occasion with the Okanagan premiere of this masterpiece.
