Dear friends,
ZURICH opera offers several streamings (for free)

Next week they will broadcast the fantastic ballet „Messa da Requiem“ with the music of Giuseppe Verdi starting Sunday April 5th at 18:30 CET until next Sunday April 12th midnight.

End of December I saw it live - incredible, stunning - a MUST see for all fans of ballet and a "do not miss" for all fans of classical music!!

With the Messa da Requiem, Christian Spuck brought one of Verdi's key works to the stage. In a large-scale co-production by the Ballett and Oper Zürich, the German choreographer and director ventured to portray an unusual interpretation of Verdi's funeral mass in his scenic-choreographic production.

36 dancers, the choir and supplementary choir of the Opernhaus Zürich as well as four highly acclaimed soloists joined together under the direction of Fabio Luisi for 13 wide-ranging scenes dedicated to one of the most fundamental themes of humanity. Christian Spuck does not seek a merer religious interpretation of the liturgical text. Instead, he is interested in focusing on people who, in their vulnerability and helplessness, are in the search for comfort. In poetic tableaux he deals with basic human emotions and focuses on the feelings of fear, rage, pain, sadness and the search for redemption.

Looking forward seeing you again soon live and healthy!
