Verdi’s Requiem performed by Monteverdi Choir at Westminster Catherdal

A special evening in support of cancer research

| Visit website

The world-famous Monteverdi Choir and Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique, conducted by Sir John Eliot Gardiner, will be performing Verdi’s astounding Messa da Requiem at Westminster Cathedral. This very special evening will be in support of Cancer Research UK and dedicated to the memory of MCO’s late Stage Manager Richard Fitzgerald who sadly passed away following a short battle with lung cancer in August 2016.  The concert will be a celebration of Richard’s work, and of the stage management profession more generally: the unsung heroes of the performing world.

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).

Messa da Requiem performed by Monteverdi Choir and Orchestra led by Sir John Eliot Gardner at Westminster Cathedral on 18 September 2018. Tickets from £35 – in support of Cancer Research UK
