Trumpets blaze, the clouds tear apart, and heaven and earth are filled with the sound of a mighty chorus.

Some say that Verdi’s Requiem is the most thrilling opera he never wrote, but one thing’s for certain: it’s a truly epic opening night for a Season that celebrates the 50th anniversary of our magnificent CBSO Chorus. And with Kazuki Yamada conducting our 90 incredible musicians, it’ll raise the roof.
