The New Apostolic Church Choir and Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra present Verdi’s Requiem at the Silvertown Auditorium on Palm Sunday, 14 April 2019 at 5 pm.
Giuseppe Verdi is best known for his operatic works and his Requiem Mass, written to commemorate the death of Alessandro Manzoni, the Italian poet and novelist, is in fact his only major sacred work. This religious composition is however filled with Verdi’s characteristic emotional intensity and is almost operatic. The deep-felt religious and spiritual emotion in Verdi’s Requiem Mass coupled with its melodic beauty is sure to have a powerful impact on any audience.
From 18 - 31 March 2019, tickets will be available at Computicket at a discounted price of R70. Thereafter, all tickets will cost R100. Secure parking is provided for all vehicles.
