Mozart’s Requiem is back in the Catholic Cathedral of Moscow. The funeral mass, one of the most famous masterpieces of the great Austrian composer, is surrounded by contradictory legends. As new historical facts blur the boundary between reality and fiction, why don’t we come and find an answer to the crucial question: who was the Black Messenger who commissioned Mozart’s last composition? What’s more, the immortal masterpiece will be performed by the Helikon-Opera’s big symphony orchestra, choir and soloists, and their performance is considered one of the best versions of the Requiem. A concert taking place in a church will help to perceive the harmony of the music created by a genius and of the liturgical texts that inspired him.
