A new creation to the Requiem by Gabriel Fauré, supplemented with eastern-inspired compositions by Wim Henderickx, performed live by HERMESensemble.

In addition to the dancers of Royal Ballet Flanders, Cherkaoui will also bring the Chorus and Children’s Chorus of Opera Vlaanderen to the stage.

This REQUIEM is all about blending, with great respect for the various traditions. The Requiem as a serene and contemplative plea for the emancipation of humankind.
