The Metropolitan Opera’s 2023-24 season of Saturday matinee broadcasts continues with a highlight from the Met’s fall season: Giuseppe Verdi’s intensely dramatic Requiem.

Met Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducted this monumental setting of the Catholic mass for the dead in a concert performance featuring the magnificent Metropolitan Opera Orchestra and Chorus.

The star soloists were soprano Leah Hawkins, mezzo-soprano Karen Cargill, tenor Matthew Polenzani, and bass Dmitry Belosselskiy.

Verdi’s Requiem will be heard over the Robert K. Johnson Foundation-Metropolitan Opera International Radio Network at 1 p.m. ET on Saturday, March 30.
