After the lengthy closure because of the sanitary emergency, the temple of opera on British soil prepares to re-open its doors for an extraordinary event. It will be an evening rife with emotions, where the chorus and orchestra of the English National Opera return to the stage of the London Coliseum with four noted soloists to present Mozart’s Requiem. Grand, solemn and heartrending, the last composition of the Austrian composer is full of new meaning - “It is the perfect music for a moment of reflection for our public, an occasion for collective memory,” said the artistic director of the ENO, Annilese Miskimmon. “This period without the possibility of bringing music to life was as unbearable for us as it was for our public,” added Director Martyn Brabbins: “The moving Requiem by Mozart will bring us joyously back together.” It is an invite that will surely be accepted by lovers of classical music, while safety will be assured at the London Coliseum with the most rigorous measures of social distancing. With the energy inspired by the director’s wand of Brabbins, we’ll hear an amazing gathering of British and international stars - Elizabeth Llewellyn (soprano), Dame Sarah Connolly (mezzo soprano), Toby Spence (tenor) and Brindley Sherratt (basso).
