Santtu-Matias Rouvali conducts Requiem by Verdi in Tampere Hall during Easter 2020

Please note! The performance of Verdi’s Requiem on Thursday, 9 April is part of Tampere Filharmonia’s seasonal pass series of spring 2020. Sales of seasonal passes will begin on Monday, 6 May at 9:00 a.m. Sales of individual tickets for the Maundy Thursday’s performance will start on 2 December 2019. The ticket sales for the Easter Saturday performance of Verdi’s Requiem on 11 April will begin on Monday, 20 May at 9:00 a.m.

In April 2020, Tampere Hall will present one of the most dramatic choral works in musical history, Verdi’s Requiem, in co-operation with Tampere Filharmonia, Tampere Opera’s choir, Tampere Philharmonic Choir and four spectacular soloists. The piece will be conducted by the orchestra’s own chief conductor Santtu-Matias Rouvali, and the soloists will include Helena Juntunen who starred as Mimi in Tampere Opera’s La Bohème in spring 2019, contralto Maiju Vaahtoluoto who made her debut at the Finnish National Opera in autumn 2017, and tenor Andrea Shin and bass Giorgi Kirof who both made their debuts at New York’s Metropolitan in 2018. Kirof was seen in the role of Padre Guardino in Tampere Opera’s production of Verdi’s The Power of Fate in 2016. The first performance of Verdi’s Requiem will be on Maundy Thursday, 9 April at 7:00 p.m. The concert will also be performed on Easter Saturday, 11 April at 3:00 p.m.

Giuseppe Verdi’s (1813–1901) Requiem has been called his best work of opera, and not in vain. The piece features one of the most earth-shattering doomsday depictions in musical history. Grief and the related array of emotions get under the audience’s skin, unlike in many other, more spiritual requiems.

The duration of the concert is 70 minutes.
