Verdi is part of the Italian DNA. His melodies have been adopted as unofficial national anthems and his name incorporated into a political slogan. He also served as a senator in the then recently unified Italian state. Our second Italian concert in the Academy Voices: Transcending Borders series explores his operatic output and that of his successor, Puccini, who brought opera into the 20th century with his talent for catchy tunes.
