Opera composer GIUSEPPE VERDI (1813~1901)

Celebrating the 200th anniversary of VERDI's birth in 2013.

VERDI's I MASNADIERI opera musical excerpts by the WASHINGTON CONCERT OPERA (WCO) with Anthony Walker, Artistic director will be performed by soprano Colleen Daly and tenor Rolando Sanz, accompanied on the piano by Patrick O'Donnell in honor of VERDI's 200th anniversary of his birth.
The story takes place in Franconia, Germany, sometime during the 17th century. It revolves around intrigue, featuring love as the central theme, complicated by jealousy, power, abuse, deceipt.

I Masnadieri (The Bandits) was written by Giuseppe Verdi on Andrea Maffei's libretto, based on the tragedy Die Räuber by Friederich Schiller [masked]). Verdi himself conducted at the premiere in London on July 22, 1847, with Queen Victoria and Prince Albert in attendance.

    I RSVPd on the embassy site and thought I got a confirmation email but looking at it again I am not sure. Should I call the embassy to make sure I am on the acceptance list?

    All I was able to do online (and with link provided), was sign up for their event email. When received, there was no link to register for this event. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    I had same experience as Rozanne; "RSVP" was just signing up for email list. I received confirmation of that, but nothing about this event.
