Britten’s War Requiem, Southbank Centre

"Britten’s War Requiem, Southbank Centre was a truly immersive experience introducing, exploring and ultimately performing Britten’s epic War Requiem.  An ambitious project encompassing talks, participatory workshops, films and the creation of a new Children’s Choir. The Southbank team – including the committed input of Marin Alsop - drew participants of all ages and experience into the creative and rehearsal process. The project reflected the profound nature of Britten’s work and was distinctive for its overall quality and its attention to detail."
