Britten's War Requiem

Sunday, Nov 24, 2013 8:15p

A massive troupe of more than 300 artists (including an organist) will bring Britten’s colossal War Requiem to life. A work with a powerful message, Britten's War Requiem is one of the most stunning musical creations of the 20th century. Written as an anti-war appeal, Britten used traditional Latin text interspersed with poems of World War I poet Wilfred Owen, who was tragically killed at age 25, a mere week before the Armistice.
