Product Description:
Giuseppe Fortunino Francesco Verdi (1813-1901) was a famed Italian opera composer born in Busseto. Verdi greatly expanded the realm of Romantic opera, taking inspiration from his predecessors, Bellini and Rossini amongst others. Some of his most famous works include the opera Aida, and his late works, Requiem, and Falstaff. This film explores the 19th century's Age of Grand Opera. It skillfully traces the time's musical development from Rossini's early works, to the occupation of Italy by Austria, to Verdi's meteoric rise in prominence in the hearts of Italian opera goers. A live performance is included in the film from the Salon of La Fenice. This is a must watch film for any lover of music and opera.
