Verdi’s Requiem: The Met Remembers 9/11

Metropolitan Opera / New York / Stage

Commemorating the 20th anniversary of the September 11 attacks, Yannick Nézet-Séguin leads the majestic Met Orchestra and Chorus in what for many music lovers remains—with all due respect to Mozart, Berlioz, Brahms, Duruflé, and Britten—the requiem of requiems, and not just the most operatic.
