Named the #1 Classical Music event of the year by the Washington Post, the extraordinary theater-music experience that defined a new era for IN Series returns to the stage as part of Districtwide SHAKESPEARE EVERYWHERE Festival. This original and unlikely piece brilliantly weaves together the entirety of Giuseppe Verdi’s shattering REQUIEM, performed by eight exceptional vocal artists in a version that allows audiences to hear this music as if for the first time, and a one-woman monodrama depicting the composer Verdi, the play “King Lear,” and aged King Lear himself. The text is formed by Artistic Director Timothy Nelson from an essay by renowned Shakespeare scholar Dr. Marjorie Garber. Nanna Ingvarsson returns to reprise her shattering interpretation of the role.
