Exploring Giuseppe Verdi's Enduring Legacy: Through Spoken Word, Music and Film Screening: In the Mouth of the Wolf (In Bocca al Lupo)

August Ventura, author and filmmaker, explores the world of traditional opera in articles and lectures and through the medium of documentary film. An ardent devotee of the life and works of Giuseppe Verdi, he has trained his sights on this “enduring legacy,” which, in the words of Verdi biographer Mary Jane Phillips-Matz, “remains a mighty force for continuing good.” To investigate how the composer’s 27 operas have served as an agent of social and political change, Ventura created an initiative he calls “27” The Verdi Documentary Film Project, with particular emphasis on the community of Parma, Italy -- known for its fierce connection to the art form -- where Verdi is rightly venerated.
