The life of Giuseppe Verdi contained almost as much tragedy and joy as his timeless operas. This beautifully filmed program traces the long and eventful career of a giant in musical composition who vowed to never write an opera again after the fiasco of his first production. Dramatic reenactments, photos, archival footage, and rare recordings from the National Institute of Verdi Studies and La Scala Opera Theatre chronicle his prolific creativity as well as his political involvements. Excerpts from Nabucco, La Traviata, Rigoletto, Aida, Macbeth, Otello, and Falstaff, Verdi's final triumph composed when he was nearly 80 years of age, provide an engaging sampling of his oeuvre.
