Join WDAV on October 10, 2013, to celebrate the birth anniversary of one of opera's greatest figures: Giuseppe Verdi.
The Viva Verdi Bicentennial Bash begins at midnight and features a different Verdi selection every hour, with occasional comments by Opera Carolina director James Meena. He will also be our special guest that day at 10:00 a.m. to help us bring our Fall Membership Campaign to an epic conclusion.
