Taconic Opera presents two famous oratorios, Mozart’s Requiem and Fauré’s Requiem at one performance! Both are presented with the orchestra, chorus, and soloists of the Taconic Opera. Many remember Mozart’s Requiem being composed at the end of his life as the pinnacle of his classical composing style. Fauré’s famous Requiem anticipates the impressionism of Debussy and Ravel. His work is more uplifting, having rid itself of the “Dies Irae” and other severe parts of the death masses. He added texts from the Rite of Burial which traditionally follow the Requiem Mass. As a result, the work is an uplifting and exalting work not to be missed. TWO PERFORMANCES!
