A concert performance of music by Mozart and Joseph Bologne.
A special concert of instrumental and vocal works pairs music by French composer Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges with that of his better-known contemporary Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
In Part 1, writer and director Simone Ibbett-Brown interweaves stories from the extraordinary life of the composer Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges, with the narrative and music from his opera The Anonymous Lover (L’Amant anonyme) from 1780.
In Part 2, Mozart’s Requiem puts the Glyndebourne Chorus in the spotlight. The composer’s emotionally-charged final work takes listeners from the darkness of the Day of Judgement through grief and loss to consolation and redemption in some of the greatest music Mozart would ever write.
On 3 December you can join members of the world-class Glyndebourne Chorus for a 2-hour masterclass before the performance of Mozart’s Requiem. Mozart Masterclass tickets cost £30 and must be purchased with a ticket to Mozart Requiem concert on 3 December at Glyndebourne.
