Verdi at Morgan Library 

Can't wait to hear Requiem this winter at the Academy of Music? Get in the Verdi spirit with a visit to the The Morgan Library and Museum in New York for a special exhibit featuring rare documents and artifacts from Milan's Ricordi Archive that give insight into the composer's Otello and Falstaff.
