Happy birthday, Giuseppe

In honor of the birthday of Giuseppe Verdi (1813-1901), here is “Brindisi” (“Drinking Song”) from La Traviata, performed  by members of the Opera Company of Philadelphia for an unsuspecting crowd at Reading Terminal Market.

  2. It is a long time since I’ve seen a mall that crowded. If an opera company did that in my town they’d be singing to about 2 dozen people. So this was fun on many levels!

    Imagine being in the middle of that. Now imagine you know the words and the song (having sung it many times) and participating in the “flash opera”.

    Imagine the fun you would have!
