Special ticket offer for Britten's 'War Requiem' on 3 May
** ALL STALLS SEATS REDUCED TO £10 ** STUDENT TICKETS NOW £3 AND £5 **
The University of Manchester Chorus and Symphony Orchestra will be performing Britten's magnificent War Requiem at the Bridgewater Hall on Sunday 3 May at 7.30pm - our first-ever appearance in this prestigious venue.
Coinciding with the 70th anniversary of the start of World War Two, this piece poignantly tells of the sacrifice and lessons of war, interspersing the poetry of Wilfred Owen with the Mass for the Dead.
The performance will see the Chorus joined by renowned soloists Amanda Roocroft, Allan Clayton and Roderick Williams as well as choristers from Manchester and Chester Cathedrals and will be conducted by Marcus Farnsworth.
We hope you will be able to join us on this momentous and historic occasion.
