Av de la Constitucion
1, 38003 Santa Cruz de Tenerife
The premier of Verdi’s (Messa de) Requiem was performed on the first anniversary of the death of Alessandro Manzoni, (an Italian Poet whom Verdi greatly admired), on the 22nd May 1874, in Milan, Italy.
At the time of its premiere, the Requiem was criticized by some as being too operatic in style for the religious subject matter (a Catholic Mass). It is now rarely performed as a liturgy, but instead in ‘concert’ format, like this performance at the Auditorio de Tenerife.
