Music for a Cheerful Thursday Verdi’s Il Trovatore

Giuseppe Verdi

Woof, woof everyone! Il Trovatore is an opera in four acts composed by Giuseppe Verdi. It was first performed at the Teatro Apollo, Rome, on 19 January 1853. Today it is given frequently and is a staple of the standard operatic repertoire.

I love Verdi not only for his fantastic arias and his remarkable chorus… he is maybe the most important opera composer. I know, there are many important composers like Mozart or Puccini but I must confess I still prefer the delicious musical notes created by Verdi. Some of his themes have long since taken root in popular culture – such as “La donna è mobile” from Rigoletto, “Va, pensiero” (The Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves) from Nabucco, “Libiamo ne’ lieti calici” (The Drinking Song) from La traviata and the “Grand March” from Aida.

Here he is, don Giuseppe Verdi. Enjoy these more than two hours of music as I will. Be happy and… food, music, love and peace for everyone! Have a nice day. Woof, woof!
