Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Lyric Opera of Chicago invites you to experience Mozart’s Requiem. Legend has it that Mozart believed he was writing the Requiem for his own funeral. Other composers completed it after his death, but — miraculously — this is not only a totally unified work musically, but one of the greatest choral pieces ever written. It offers a sublime beauty and dignity that leaves audiences profoundly moved and memorably uplifted. Under Music Director Enrique Mazzola, these concerts also present a unique opportunity to hear Mozart’s elegant and rarely-performed incidental music from Thamos, King of Egypt. Join us and bask in the beauty and power of Mozart as we celebrate the extraordinary Lyric Opera Orchestra and Chorus.
