This multi-disciplinary presentation invites us to reckon with the impact of COVID-19—and heal together through the power of Mozart’s astonishingly moving Requiem.
Incorporating interviews with front-line medical workers and community members directly affected by the pandemic, this interpretation conceived by Joel Ivany and Johannes Debus connects individual stories of loss and resilience to the sonic world of Mozart’s heartbreakingly beautiful piece. The result charts a passage out of the darkest days of an unprecedented global event towards a new hope for a brighter tomorrow.
Featuring artists from the COC Ensemble Studio training program, as well as Kwagiulth and Stó:lo First Nations mezzo-soprano Marion Newman. With the Canadian Opera Company Orchestra and Chorus.
