This ode to life based on Mozart’s unfinished “Requiem” is a visually powerful and stirring scenic meditation on disappearance and transience. Complemented by lesser-known sacred works by Mozart, the requiem is transformed into a celebration of life in Romeo Castellucci's production. In ritualistic choreographies, the choir and a group of dancers merge into the energy center of the evening. Having fallen victim to the corona pandemic in the 2020/21 season, the now internationally acclaimed co-production with the Festival d'Aix-en-Provence and the Adelaide Festival finally comes to Basel. Ivor Bolton, principal conductor of the Sinfonieorchester Basel, will conduct. The opera will be performed in Latin, with German and English surtitles.
Tickets are CHF 30-145.
