About

The Met Orchestra and The Met Chorus perform Brahms’s grandest creation: his Requiem. This sublime piece of sacred music is a profoundly uplifting and unusually humanistic work. The chance to experience it in the acoustics of Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage, where the uncompromised depth of these ensembles’ sound can reverberate through the concert hall, is not to be missed. Soprano Lisette Oropesa and baritone Quinn Kelsey join in this singular masterpiece of the choral repertory.

Reviews

The Met Chorus shines radiantly in music of loss at Carnegie Hall

Oropesa’s “Ihr habt nun Traurigkeit.” ... she sang with a touch of rubato, her lines opening up and gliding above the orchestra. There was a feeling of joy in her singing.
