The Helsingborg Symphony Orchestra takes on Verdi’s Requiem under the direction of the Italian and opera expert Pier-Giorgio Morandi. The Mass is practically an opera in disguise, packed with all the drama and emotions Verdi is known for: passion, anger, sadness, regret and finally, acceptance.

Think of the Dies irae, a phrase you’ve probably heard, perhaps as the background to a particularly exciting movie scene, for example from “The Simple Murderer” or “Mad Max: Fury Road”. It is as violent as it is exciting and one of the most iconic pieces of music.

Although Verdi may be best known for his operas, his Death Mass shows that he could also embrace sacred expression with equal mastery. You can expect not only a celebration of life and art, but also a testament to the raw power and beauty of human expression. Do not miss the chance to experience this profound and breathtaking work!
