Considered the greatest of all opera composers, Verdi was a zealous nationalist who wrote his music not to please critics or the aristocracy but to entertain the masses. Known for his soaring arias and unforgettable melodies, his goal was to infuse dramatic power into opera. With paintings, photos, and extensive musical excerpts, this program looks at the life and enduring works of Verdi. Opera and stage directors Gerard Mortier and Lucchino Visconti discuss his contributions to the art. Featured recordings include Luciano Pavarotti performing in Rigoletto; Sir George Solti conducting Falstaff; Herbert von Karajan conducting Messa da Requiem and Otello; and selections from Don Carlo, La Traviata, Aida, Nabucco, and Macbeth
