Victoria Kelly Requiem

What does it mean to be alive, knowing that life is finite?

Award-winning composer Victoria Kelly elevates one of the most ancient musical forms, the Requiem, and takes it to new secular and spiritual heights.

Premiering alongside a new composition for taonga puoro and orchestra by Ruby Solly, and featuring the magnificent voices of Simon O’Neill and Jayne Tankersley, Kelly’s exquisite work is poignantly shaped around poetry by Bill Manhire, Sam Hunt, Chloe Honum, Ian Wedde and James K Baxter, and inspired by the visual language of acclaimed photographer, Anne Noble.

Originally scheduled for 2022, Auckland Arts Festival is now proud to present the world premiere of Requiem in March 2023.
