The classical music world celebrates the centenary of British composer Benjamin Britten in 2013. James Conlon, music director of the Los Angeles Opera, brings a massive troupe of more than 300 artists (including an organist) to bring Britten’s colossal War Requiem to life.

A work with a powerful message, the War Requiem is one of the most stunning musical creations of the 20th century. Written as an anti-war appeal, Britten used traditional Latin text interspersed with poems of World War I poet Wilfred Owen, who was tragically killed at age 25, a mere week before the Armistice.
