Have you ever found yourself wondering who precisely Aida is, and why all the fuss? Are you embarrassed to admit that you've no earthly idea what Rigoletto is about? Perhaps you've wonderd about the 19th century political implications of the suicide in Rrnani, or why Il Trovatore could be the unscknowledged source of rock'n'roll. Maybe you simply want to know why so many believe the world can be divided into two populations, those "who think that Don Carlos is the Greatest Thing That Has Ever Happened to Art" and everybody else.

Whatever it is ou could possible want to know about Verdi-from the composer's intense hatred of priests to historical sources for all the operas to a detailed discussion of what to expect from a performance-it is all in VERDI WITH A VENGEANCE.
