In English he would be 'Joe Green'.
The opera buffs who you'd call nerdy
ID  his arias act and scene.

"The CSO will carry the (Riccardo) Muti-led Requiem on its website and also on its Facebook page. The public may also “attend” the concert at the Tribune website as well as at Muti's own website ( In addition, the performance will be available to Internet users on demand following the actual performance. Updates and further information will be available at both CSO sites and by following #csoverdi on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook." [John von Rhein in the Chicago Tribune]

In addition: Bill McGlauglin's 'Exploring Music' radio program is devoted exclusively to Verdi this week and next. It airs locally on WFMT (98.7) at 7:00 p.m.
