Insight: Requiem - Hope For Our Future

'The Shape of Things to Come' concludes with a film of one of the most profound, yet uplifting, ‘operatic’ achievements of our lifetime, Requiem. ARTE filmed the opening performance of one of Europe’s most radical artists, Romeo Castellucci, and his company, Societas Raffaello Sanzio’s production at the 2019 Aix-En-Provence Opera Festival.

In a sublimation of music, chorus and song, dance, ritual, performance art, extraordinary tableaux and costuming and an atlas of great extinctions, Requiem is a paean to mankind's creativity yet ultimately comes down on the side of hope, through the innocence of our children, beginning once again.

"‘Requiem’ has a radiant quality, celebrating the community bonds and cycles that undergird life and death. Castellucci suggests a benevolent nature which can heal the wounds of modern life, if we don't destroy it...a remarkable experience...it is beautiful and cryptic...a revelation." - Financial Times.
