Volunteers for Verdi
Located at the northernmost border of Los Angeles' Chinatown, Casa Italiana is home to as eclectic a crowd as ever appeared in a major Hollywood movie. Drawn together by unflagging passion, dreadful tenacity and the notion that opera goes down better with a plate of spaghetti, these "Volunteers for Verdi" embody the rich cultural mix in Southern California, where America's melting pot continues to bubble and individual dreams can and do come true, even into the twilight years.
Mario Leonetti, Yunghee Kavanagh, Walter Unterberg, Phyllis Elliott, Victoria Brago
