Adding or finding a profile

  • Operas are in chronologiical order. Click open from the list. Persons are sorted by role and birth year.
  • To get a profile added, first join Verdi Gallery, and then add the profile.
  • If a performer or other production contributor has an outstanding international career, the profile can be added to the role lists of operas. This is helped by a role/work list in the profile overview section. You may also start a new project discussion.
  • Because the lists of major roles are crowded, it is for a performer "easier to get a minor role" in the lists. Verdi Gallery has a special love for comprimarios and soubrettes.
