Film-maker August Ventura will share some extraordinary findings that have surfaced during research for his film project on Parma’s unique brand of Verdi-mania, including abundant rehearsal and performance footage, some of which have not been seen in over a century. He will provide an intriguing backstory of their rediscovery as well as a fascinating glimpse into the uniquely working-class milieu of Parma’s opera-mad populace.
