Oct. 27 marked what would have been the 93rd birthday of renowned Minnesota composer Dominick Argento, who died last year.

Join us as we honor his life and legacy with an encore broadcast from the Minnesota Opera of 2009's Casanova's Homecoming, a delightful farce based on the memoirs of the legendary adventurer Giacomo Casanova.
