Messa da Requiem with director and choreographer Christian Spuck | Dutch National Opera & Ballet

Following the success of Missa in tempore belli the previous season, the Chorus of Dutch National Opera and the dancers of Dutch National Ballet are combining forces once more. Led by choreographer and director Christian Spuck, they share the stage with four soloists, accompanied by the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra. In his interpretation of Verdi’s Messa da Requiem, Spuck brings together vocal music and dance with great virtuosity, in poetically powerful tableaux.
