As one of few composers to be considered a giant in the realm of universally accepted operatic works as well as a source of national Italian identity, Giuseppe Verdis repertoire is one of the most widely performed in history. Although much of Verdis life remains a mystery, the composers insistence on his peasant upbringing was somewhat untruthful; he grew up comfortablya learned man. Detailing Verdis confused past, this book aims to confirm the world-renowned composers personal history as well as debunk any of the embellishments the ageing maestro promulgated himself.
