Giuseppe Verdi was born in 1813 and lived until 1901, his life spanning nearly a century of political turmoil and considerable personal turmoil. This 1982 biographical television miniseries, as seen on PBS's Great Performances, dramatizes the life of this classic Italian composer known for operas including La Traviata, Rigoletto, and Aida and his Requiem.
each biographic movie is a challenge. for entire artistic team. and for viewer. Verdi is not an exception. and more important than the accuracy of events, music or costumes, landscapes and performances of actors is the atmosphere. far to be a masterpiece, it is a honest good series about the life, the fights, the work, the success and the search of the best musical phrase by one of the essentials Italian composers. a film who not ignores romanticism and old recipes for conquer the public but it preserves and presents the air of a period, the force of characters and a Giuseppe Verdi who is more than a decent sketch. and that details are basis for an admirable job. because the drama and the music and the lights and the landscapes are keys for a beautiful universe episode by episode.
