Verdi's Greatest Hit


Published:

It’s always performed without sets and costumes. It doesn’t have any plot. Among its many musical highlights is an utterly awesome vision of the world’s end and the Last Judgment. It’s a deeply religious work that could be played in a church (a really big one!), but many regard the Messa da Requiemas Verdi’s greatest opera. Few sacred choral works are this charged with unabashed theatricality. Judge for yourself as maestro Jahja Ling (pictured) leads the San Diego Symphony and the Master Chorale, with operatic soloists singing their hearts out. (Nov. 19 & 20 at 8, Nov. 21 at 2 in Copley Symphony Hall, 750 B St., downtown, 619-235- 0804; sandiegosymphony.com.)
