Join us for the second part of our two-week series featuring Verdi with more of his operas and other works, both iconic and underappreciated. Verdi takes on Italian painters, Egyptian princesses, and composes perhaps the grandest requiem ever written. Rumor has it that at Verdi’s funeral a hundred thousand voices rose in song as Toscanini conducted the “Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves” from his opera Nabucco.
