Booking now open for Verdi Requiem at Westminster Cathedral

On Tuesday 18 September 2018 at 7.30pm the Monteverdi ensembles will perform Giuseppe Verdi’s legendary Messa da Requiem at London’s Westminster Cathedral. This special event will be in support of Cancer Research UK and dedicated to the memory of our late Stage Manager Richard Fitzgerald, who worked with MCO for more than fifteen years. He sadly passed away following a short battle with lung cancer in August 2016.

This will be a very special evening which will celebrate Richard’s work, and the stage management profession more generally - the unsung heroes of the performing world, whose tireless efforts behind the scenes make our work possible.

The Monteverdi Choir and ORR will be at full strength for this unique concert with more than 140 musicians taking to the stage. It will also be a chance to experience the thrill and variety of Verdi’s masterpiece in a historically-informed performance on period instruments. They will be joined by a stellar line-up of internationally renowned soloists: Corinne Winters (Soprano), Ann Hallenberg (Mezzo-soprano), Edgaras Montvidas (Tenor) and Gianluca Buratto (Bass).
