The Metropolitan Opera in New York City will mark a full year of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine with a concert in remembrance of the war's victims.

Met music director Yannick Nézet-Seguin will conduct Mozart’s Requiem and Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony. Soprano Golda Schultz, mezzo-soprano Emily D’Angelo, tenor Dmytro Popov, and Ukrainian bass-baritone Vladyslav Buialskyi will be the soloists at the Feb. 24 concert, the Associated Press reported.

“Mozart’s Requiem is to remember the innocent victims of the war, and Beethoven’s Fifth is in anticipation of the victory to come,” Met general manager Peter Gelb said in a statement on Jan. 20.

Tickets for the concert go on sale on Feb. 1 and are priced at $50. The concert will also be broadcast on the radio.
