One of the world's greatest choral works, Verdi's magnificent operatic Requiem was an immediate and spectacular success at its first performance in 1874. Its overwhelming forces–some tender, some terrifying–are a monument to Verdi's mastery of the sung word. On Palm Sunday, join The Washington Chorus and Orchestra along with world-class soloists for a performance you won't forget.
Performance Timing: 90 minutes, without intermission.
