Requiem for the Fallen | Arts Festival Dunedin 2014


"Requiem delivered with primal passion" - NZ HERALD

Requiem for the Fallen is a powerful and moving musical drama written in commemoration of World War I by composer Ross Harris, Poet Laureate Vincent O'Sullivan and taonga puoro composer Horomona Horo.

The work interweaves text from the Requiem Mass with poetry, taonga puoro and string quartet. The New Zealand String Quartet will be joined by the chamber choir of Voices New Zealand along with Horomona Horo and tenor Richard Greager in this wonderful concert conducted by Karen Grylls.

This is a real reflection upon New Zealand's remarkable role in World War I and the effect it has had on the entire country over the past 100 years.

Commissioned for the 2014 New Zealand Arts Festival, Requiem for the Fallen, will have its second performance in Dunedin. The Town Hall will be reconfigured in a dramatic and unique way to stage this work on the final afternoon of the Festival.
