This colorfully filmed drama of the life and loves of the great composer, Giuseppe Verdi, is played against a background of the great operas of the 19th Century. A tender love story of Verdi’s successful and turbulent life, we hear more than 20 excerpts from Rigoletto, La Traviata, Otello, Aida, Il Trovatore, Nabucco and many other operas. A theatrical and critical success when the feature film was released in the US in 1974, Verdi: The King of Melody, will touch your heart.
