This concert will set the stage for our full-scale production of Aïda. Giuseppe Verdi’s life was one of both joy and heartache. From his musical triumphs, to the births of his children, to the loss of his family to illnesses, there was no emotion that Verdi did not experience fully. These experiences were the fires that forged 19th Century Italy’s greatest musical talent. Join us on a musical exploration of Italy’s towering genius of opera. Verdi Vincitor! will explore the Italian master’s compositional evolution, surveying a vast swath of repertoire.
