About this event

Drums thunder, trumpets blast, and a huge chorus yells out in terror: Verdi’s Requiem isn’t what you might expect from religious music!

But it’s exactly what you’d expect from the grand master of Italian opera – the composer of Otello, La Traviata, and Rigoletto.

Verdi’s Requiem crowns the fourth week of the Summer School programme, and combines wall-of-sound choral and orchestral writing with spine-tingling solos. This is a chance to experience the visceral power of Verdi’s vision – thrilling, passionate and uplifting.

Don’t miss our other choral concerts:
Ex Cathedra on 28 and 29 July
Christmas in the Sun on 3 August
Bach’s St Matthew Passion on 10 August
Haydn’s The Creation on 17 August

About us

The Dartington Experiment began over 90 years ago when our founders, Dorothy and Leonard Elmhirst, set out to build a community inspired by the idea of a ‘many-sided life’.

Today, we believe that their vision is more relevant today than ever before. We aim to be a place where people can realise their individual and collective potential, and are given a chance to connect with themselves, each other, and the environment.

Across the estate, a programme of events and visitor attractions operate year-round; artists, makers, farmers, educators, craftspeople and entrepreneurs live and work; and the community continues to ‘learn by doing’, finding inspiration in the Elmhirst’s progressive ideas and experimental approach.
