An inexplicable malady is making the rounds of the city’s young men. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is not just ill but deathly so when a strange messenger delivers a commission to write a requiem mass. The client prefers to remain secret. Rattled to his core, a fragile Mozart accepts the commission. And so, we have the astonishing Requiem in D Minor. And the chance to hear it performed, as Central City Opera, with the Denver Philharmonic and the Performing Arts Academy’s gifted students, lift it up. Surely a transporting experience, meant to be shared.
