Mozart’s Requiem

A specially recorded performance of Mozart’s Requiem from English National Opera presented by Danielle de Niese will be broadcast on BBC Two on Saturday 14 November from the London Coliseum.

ENO’s chorus and orchestra will be under the direction of Mark Wigglesworth—replacing Martyn Brabbins who has had to withdraw from conducting—with soloists Elizabeth Llewellyn (soprano), Dame Sarah Connolly (mezzo soprano), Ed Lyon (tenor) and Gerald Finley (bass).

Harry Brunjes, Chair of ENO, said, "we are so pleased to see Mark Wigglesworth return to the London Coliseum to conduct our award-winning ENO Chorus and Orchestra as we broadcast to the nation on BBC Two. Although disappointed that we will no longer be performing to a live audience, ENO cannot wait to share this musical moment with households around the country."
