About this course:

A leading Italian composer of opera in the 19th century, Giuseppe Verdi wrote 28 operas, nearly half of which have become staples of the international operatic repertoire. Though he started out as a journeyman musician, he ended up one of the most influential Italians of his day--and not just in music. In this course we look at Verdi’s career and examine representative operas: Nabucco, Rigoletto, Traviata, Aida, and Otello to understand how Verdi created a distinctly Italian genre of music-theater that eventually dominated the field, gained him worldwide fame, and continues to excite audiences to the present day.
