Messa da Requiem
Verdi’s Messa da Requiem is sometimes jokingly referred to as ‘Verdi’s best opera’ due to its operatic nature. Verdi (1813-1901) put so much drama into the solemn mass that it cries out for a theatrical interpretation, with the addition of moving bodies. Christian Spuck, a product of the renowned choreographic school of Stuttgarter Ballett, has created an unusual staged and choreographic interpretation of the impressive work. For the large-scale production, which had its world premiere at Opernhaus Zürich in 2016, he worked with no fewer than 36 dancers, over 100 chorus members and vocal soloists.
