Having made its international premiere in Aix-en-Provence earlier this month, Romeo Castellucci’s new production of Mozart’s Requiem will head to South Australia as part of the 2020 Adelaide Festival program.
Famously unfinished at the time of his death in 1791, Mozart’s swansong has received a colourful and dramatic new reinterpretation at the hands of Castelluci, who has embellished the original work with Gregorian chants and lesser-known motifs from Mozart’s canon. Led by emerging Australian soprano Siohban Stagg alongside alto Sara Mingardo, bass Luca Tittoto and tenor Martin Mitterrutzner, the 2020 Adelaide production will see the current cast joined by the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra, a 36-member chorus and the dancers of Australian Dance Theatre.
