Happy Birthday Joe Green

Today is the 200th birthday of Giuseppe Verdi.  As I write, the Chicago Symphony performs a free concert of Verdi's Requiem for 20,000 plus in Millennium Park on a perfect night following a host of Verdi events at the CSO, the Lyric Opera and Chicago Opera Theater.  Way to go Joe!

  1. Bravissimo. One of my earliest memories is watching Dad perform in the Anchorage Opera production of Rigoletto. That must have been in the late '70s. Joe would have been something like 165 at the time!
