The Gilmore Music Library is celebrating the 200th anniversary of the birth of Giuseppe Verdi with Verdi and His Singers, an exhibit now on view in the Music Library. It features five items in Verdi’s hand: a quotation from Otello and four letters. It also includes a caricature of Verdi by Enrico Caruso, a Verdi score annotated by Robert Shaw, several photographs, and a variety of other materials. Many of the materials are associated with Victor Maurel, a baritone who sang major roles in the premieres of Otello and Falstaff. The exhibit will be on view until the end of February, during the opening hours of SML.
