On March 20, 2014, San Diego Opera will present Verdi's Requiem with a cast of soloists that would rival any opera or symphonic organization in the world: Stoyanova, Blythe, Beczala and Furlanetto. Massimo Zanetti will conduct the San Diego Symphony and the San Diego Opera Chorus plus members of other choral organizations in the city. This is a very special event, but we have audiences wondering: just what is a Requiem? Let Nicolas Reveles, the Geisel Director of Education and Outreach fill you in! Enjoy.
