Join us for a lively program of music and stories about the life and achievements of Italy’s most beloved composer — Giuseppe Verdi. Under the direction of City Opera Vancouver with host Tom Durrie, four extraordinary singers, along with pianist David Boothroyd will perform many of Verdi’s most famous arias, duets, trios and, of course, the incredible quartet from “Rigoletto”. There will also be a few unexpected treats: pieces from Verdi’s lesser known operas, and even a chance to join in on well-known choruses. This promises to be a memorable event, held on the very day of Giuseppe Verdi’s birth, 200 years ago. Tickets are $20. For information and tickets, please call our office at 604 430 3337. This production is presented in collaboration with the Istituto Italiano di Cultura.
