Verdi Requiem

Presented by

Brisbane Chorale, The Queensland Choir, Brisbane Concert Choir and Brisbane Philharmonic Orchestra in association with Queensland Music Festival and Queensland Performing Arts Centre and Brisbane City Council


Natalie Aroyan, Milijana Nikolic, Diego Torre and Warwick Fyfe


Experience the insight, passion and drama of one of history’s most superlative composers.

From the thunderbolt explosions of the Dies Irae to the hushed prayers of the Libera Me, Verdi’s use of vigorous rhythms, sublime melodies, and dramatic contrasts showcases the insight, passion, and drama of one of history’s most superlative opera composers in his musical setting of the venerable funeral mass.


The Requiem’s composition came near the end of Verdi’s long career – after he had written all but his final two operas – and is unlike anything else in his output.
