Kentish Opera is delighted
to be teaming up with The Bromley Philharmonic Choir for a special
performance of Verdi's Requiem. It will be conducted by Robyn
Sevastos with orchestra. The combined chorus should be in the
region of 100 voices, so it will sound magnificent.
The four soloists are Helen Bailey, Gaynor Keeble, Roberto Abate
and Mark Saberton. Helen recent played Santuzza in our Spring
production of Cavalleria Rusticana, Gaynor last sang with KO
in Samson and Delilah and before that in Aida. Roberto was our
fearsome Canio in Pagliacci and Mark last performed with us as
a memorable Amonasro in our 2013 production of Aida.
The Requiem will be performed in St George's Church, Beckenham,
as part of their annual festival. There will only be one performance.
The church only has a limited seating capacity, so tickets will
be at a premium.
The music of the Verdi's Requiem combines religious grandeur
with operatic drama and passion, and contains equally exquisite
writing for both chorus and soloists. It is notable for its emotional
depth and variety shown, for example, in the terror of the 'Dies
Irae', the dignity of the sorrowful 'Lacrimosa', the anxious
pleading of the 'Libera me' and the spirited 'Sanctus'.
