Judgement Day: drums thunder, trumpets blast, and a massed chorus cries out in terror. Verdi’s Requiem might not be what you expect from religious music, but it’s exactly what you’d expect from the supreme master of Italian opera. With the full RSNO Chorus joined by four world-class operatic soloists, hold on to your seats and prepare to be overwhelmed as Thomas Søndergård ends the Season by taking you from heaven to hell – and back again.
