It would be quite complicated to find a music theater worldwide that doesn’t stage his operas. Indeed, the opera-master, Giuseppe Verdi raised Italian opera to the very peak of its art perfection, having led it out of crisis and reforming. He created 26 of them – 26 beautiful, even ‘model’ operas – and a Requiem. Three last works, according to critics, are the culmination of composer’s creative work: “Aida”, “Otello” and “Falstaff”.
An eternal competitor of Richard Wagner, Verdi became leader of the national Italian school. He is known for his extremely demanding and scrupulous attitude to every piece of work he gave birth to. Realism is what he was sticking to in music in the first turn. Hard to believe that this rarity person was once refused admittance to music conservatory (that today is actually named after him) for his bad piano performance.
