I write Opera

Discover Verdi’s operas through the consultation of four sections: “Opera describes itself” a RAI (Italian national television) film which introduces the viewer to the historical and political background of Verdi’s life time with an overview and a description of each opera’s plot: “Documents” enables the viewer to access librettos, literary sources, original manuscripts and editions for voice and pianoforte; “Productions” contains sketches, images, lists of technical necessities, posters, fliers, staging instructions; “Historical recordings” presents a listing of the musical works held in the record archives for the National Institute for Verdi Studies and at the Central Institute for Audiovisual Documents and Cultural Heritage (ICBSA).
