On the 29th of June the choral society Quadriclavio of Bologna, together with Leipzig Opera Choir and Gewandhaus orchestra will perform “Messa da Requiem” by Giuseppe Verdi at Leipzig Opera House. The Opera House has invited Quadriclavio choral society to Leipzig, one of Bologna’s twin town, in order to present the Italian masterpiece as a tribute to Giuseppe Verdi. Last year the two-hundredth anniversary of Verdi’s birth was celebrated all over the world.
Director of music Anthony Bramall will perform together with the choir directed by Alessandro Zuppardo and the 4 international solo artists: the Russian soprano Viktoria Yastrebova, the Italian mezzo-soprano Mariana Pizzolato, the Venezuelan tenor Aquiles Machabo and the Ukrainian bass Milcho Borovinov.
The project revolves around the participation of both international and younger artists: Leipzig Opera Choir will in effect collaborate with the Quadriclavio Choir from Bologna and with the Leipzig Children’s Choir, directed by Sophie Bauer.
