Giuseppe Fortunino Francesco Verdi was a famous Italian composer best known for his operas. Born near Busseto to a provincial family of moderate means, Verdi received a musical education with the help of a local patron. He went on to dominate the Italian opera scene after the era of Gioachino Rossini, Gaetano Donizetti, and Vincenzo Bellini; whose works had influenced his own composition.
An intensely private person, Verdi did not seek to ingratiate himself with popular movements. After becoming professionally successful he was able to reduce his operatic workload, seeking to establish himself as a landowner in his native region. He surprised the musical world by returning, after his success with the opera Aida (1871), with three late masterpieces: his Requiem (1874), and the operas Otello (1887) and Falstaff (1893)
Verdi's operas remain extremely popular, especially the three peaks of his 'middle period': Rigoletto, Il trovatore, and La traviata.
