With the Messa da Requiem, Christian Spuck brings one of Verdi’s key works to the stage. In a large-scale co-production between the Opera and Ballet Zurich, the German choreographer and director dares to attempt an unusual interpretation of Verdi’s funeral mass. 36 dancers, the choir, as well as four soloists, join under the direction of Fabio Luisi in thirteen large scenes dedicated to one of the most fundamental themes of humanity.
