Opera Roanoke is closing out its season with a show that's not technically an opera. It's a requiem - a Catholic Mass for the dead. More specifically, it's Guiseppe Verdi's Requiem. Opera Roanoke Conductor Maestro Steven White says they're using the nearly 150-year-old music to honor those lost to COVID and war. In this episode of Hometown Stories, White shares a modern take on an ancient text.
