Verdi Festival Celebrates Milestone

By Linda Tancs

As any foodie knows, the Italian city of Parma is famous for its prosciutto and cheese.  The Parma region is also the birthplace of the great Italian composer, Giuseppe Verdi.  This year’s annual Verdi festival, taking place now through 31 October, celebrates the composer’s 200th birthday.  In addition to performances at the Regio Theatre of Parma, events will also take place at the Verdi Theatre in nearby Busseto.  Enjoy performances of Falstaff, Simon Boccanegra, I Masnadieri, and Messa da Requiem.
