Verdi Requiem

Beacon Hall

Book Tickets

£5.00 - £30.00 incl. booking fee

A group of people in matching black outfits pose together in a church, complete with golden arches and checkered flooring.

Bristol Choral Society raises the roof at our transformed venue with Verdi’s spectacular, operatic Requiem. Under the baton of star conductor, Hilary Campbell, with orchestral drama provided by the British Sinfonietta and a cast of stellar soloists, this is an unmissable concert.

Known largely as a composer of operas, Verdi moved into the realm of the spiritual with his Requiem. This is rightly one of his best known works, an amazing fusion of dramatic opera with the profoundly religious feelings of the Requiem Mass. Originally conceived as a collaborative composition on the death of his fellow composer Rossini, Verdi produced his final Requiem in 1873 to celebrate the life of Italian author Manzini.

Verdi’s Requiem triumphs over death, by sheer force of its virtuosity and musicality. You will leave the hall feeling triumphant and inspired by the genius of this work.
