Happy Birthday Verdi

Happy 199th birthday to Giuseppe Verdi!

In celebration we want to know which is your favorite Verdi opera and which is your favorite aria. 


  1. Favorite opera: It's really a toss-up between Nabucco, Aida and Un Ballo in Maschera.

    Favorite aria: Again, too hard to narrow it down to one...though my favorite is probably "Salgo gia del trono aurato" by Abigaille in Nabucco. Runners up: "Volta la terrea" by Oscar and "Vieni t'affretta" by Lady Macbeth

  2. I have more recordings of Falstaff than any other opera in my collection.... Falstaff all the way!

    (Otello and Simon Boccanegra are right behind it)
