Wed 3 Jul, Sheldonian Theatre
The Sheldonian Theatre was erected in 1664-8 to a design by Sir Christopher Wren. Its purpose was to provide an appropriate secular venue for the principal meetings and public ceremonies of the University, and this remains its purpose today. In addition the theatre has become a leading venue for musical concerts and recitals. Please note that tickets for concerts cannot be bought at the Sheldonian.
Please note Semi Circle and Upper Gallery seats do not have backrest.

Join Oxford Pro Musica Singers for a performance of Mozart's sublime Requiem, a piece composed right at the end of his life – and still unfinished at the point of his death. It is one of the best-known pieces in the classical music repertoire, and has been used in dozens of films, including Eyes Wide Shut, Under Suspicion, The Big Lebowski, X-Men 2 and, of course, Amadeus. We will be joined by Oxford Sinfonia and soloists from the Royal Academy of Music, and all in one of Oxford's most iconic venues, the Sheldonian Theatre.
The programme is completed with Haydn's famous Insanae et Vanae Curae and Astorga's Stabat Mater, a setting that deserves more recognition after falling into obscurity in the 20th Century.
Duration: 1 hour 45mins with interval
