In this edition of the podcast, Brian Lauritzen talks with LA Opera Music Director James Conlon, who is conducting the 2012/13 Season opening run of Verdi's "The Two Foscari (I Due Foscari)," starring LAO General Director Placido Domingo. They discuss how this early opera foreshadows Verdi's later compositional style and how there's a little bit of Verdi's personal life in all of his art.
