Giuseppe Verdi (1813-1901) was Italy's greatest operatic composer, and his monumental setting of the Latin Requiem Mass has often been hailed as "Verdi's greatest opera." The tenderness of human grief, the awesomeness of divine mercy and judgment, and the terrifying spectacle of the end of the world are the focus of Verdi's cosmic panorama and the subject of this core work of the choral-orchestral repertoire.
In honor of the 200th anniversary of the composer's birth, the combined UNL Choirs, joined with the University Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Director of Orchestras Tyler White, unite in the Lied Center for an unforgettable musical and dramatic experience, not performed at UNL for 45 years.
