Fabrizio Cassol & Alain Platel will present “Requiem pour L” at Sadler's Wells, London. Director Alain Platel and composer Fabrizio Cassol collaborate once again in this unique, poignant evening inspired by Mozart’s unfinished burial hymn, and reflecting bereavements in Platel’s life.

With 14 musicians and singers from across the globe, many of whom performed in Coup Fatal in 2015, Cassol reconstructs the Requiem using diverse musical influences from popular African rhythms to jazz and opera, creating a new version while keeping the essence of Mozart alive.

Platel builds a potent visual world of death and ritual, exploring themes of mortality by combining movement, Mozart’s requiem mass and powerful footage of a friend dying which is shown throughout the performance. Inspired by the diverse mix of cultures and influences on stage, Platel creates a moving ceremony of mourning alongside an uplifting celebration of life.It’s a production by les ballets C de la B, Festival de Marseille, Berliner Festspiele.

The show will be on stage on March 20, 2018 and March 21, 2018 at Sadler's Wells, Rosebery Avenue, London, EC1R
