Tito Gobbi Exhibit (November, 2013)
October 2013 marked two important anniversaries in the world of Italian opera: the bicentennial of Giuseppe Verdi, and the 100th anniversary of the birth of Tito Gobbi, one of the greatest baritones of the 20th century. Gobbi had retired before LA Opera was founded, but opera lovers in Los Angeles enjoyed several opportunities to experience him in his prime. An exhibit in the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion lobby throughout the run of LA Opera’s production of Verdi’s Falstaff presents a wealth of iconographic materials documenting Tito Gobbi as an interpreter of Verdi.
Materials for the Tito Gobbi centenary exhibit provided courtesy of Cecilia Gobbi.
