Anthem of hope
‘Happy are the sorrowful, for they shall be comforted.’ These are the opening words of Johannes Brahms' monumental choral work Ein deutsches Requiem. A religious work for the concert hall, filled with a message of hope and consolation. With this concert, we bid farewell to Ching-Lien Wu, artistic director of the Chorus of Dutch National Opera.
‘An opera chorus - and certainly one as richly coloured as ours - can give a wonderful and distinctive interpretation to Ein deutsches requiem.’
Conductor Ching-Lien Wu
Klaas-Jan de Groot
Theun van Nieuwburg
Huw Montague Rendall
That you can also create something beautiful together from a distance is something the Chorus proved with this enchanting Easter hymn from Cavalleria rusticana by Pietro Mascagni:
Farewell to Ching-Lien Wu
This production marks the departure of Ching-Lien Wu as artistic director of the Dutch National Opera Chorus. Since she took up her post, the Dutch National Opera Chorus has excelled in many fantastic productions.
Chorus of Dutch National Opera
Dutch National Opera’s success is largely due to the Chorus of the Dutch National Opera, which numbers 60 singers. The choir was named the best opera choir in the world in 2016 and is conducted by conductor Ching-Lien Wu.
