Benjamin Britten: War Requiem, ENO
16 November – 7 December 2018
Wolfgang Tillmans is collaborating with the ENO (English National Opera) for a new production of Benjamin Britten’s War Requiem to mark the centenary of the end of the First World War.
Britten’s work, which includes words from Wilfred Owen’s anti war poems, was first performed in 1962 at the consecration of Coventry’s new cathedral, built to replace the one destroyed in Second World War bombing raids. War Requiem is performed by the combined forces of an 80-strong chorus, a children’s choir of 40 from Finchley Children’s Music Group, the full ENO Orchestra, a chamber orchestra and three soloists. Supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
Joining the production team as designer and making his ENO debut Wolfgang Tillmans has worked alongside ENO Artistic Director Daniel Kramer and ENO Music Director Martyn Brabbins.

Musée National Eugène Delacroix
6 Rue de Fürstenberg
15 – 29 October 2018
private view: Sunday 14 October 2018 12pm – 2pm
As part of FIAC's Hors les Murs in collaboration with Musée du Louvre and Galerie Max Hetzler Rebecca Warren presents the bronze painted sculpture Rainer (in the garden), 2017 in the garden of the Museé National Eugène Delacroix as well as Mélancholie (in the studio), 2011 inside the museum.
Situated in the heart of Saint-Germain-des-Prés the museum is a hidden treasure. The separate studio building and adjacent garden were designed entirely by Delacroix himself. Originally the artist’s apartment and studio, it was transformed into a museum on the initiative of Maurice Denis and other great painters of the 1920s.
