Haydn's Lord Nelson Mass
The Omaha Symphony’s ground-breaking Choral Collaborative returns with Joseph Haydn’s majestic masterwork, “Lord Nelson Mass.” Originally titled “Mass for Troubled Times,” Haydn’s music is filled with virtuosic writing for soloists, choir, and orchestra alike, depicting struggles both personal and historical. Arguably Haydn’s greatest single composition, the Mass premiered as Admiral Horatio Nelson defeated Napoleon at the Battle of the Nile, earning the work its triumphant nickname. Don't miss your chance to witness your Omaha Symphony along with over 400 choral singers and four opera stars, presenting a resounding choral masterpiece inside of the world-class Holland Center!
