Giuseppe Fortunino Francesco Verdi was an Italian Romantic composer, mainly of opera. He was one of the most influential composers of Italian opera in the 19th century. His works are frequently performed in opera houses throughout the world and, transcending the boundaries of the genre, some of his themes have long since taken root in popular culture - such as "La donna è mobile" from Rigoletto, "Va, pensiero" from Nabucco, and "Libiamo ne' lieti calici" from La traviata. Although his work was sometimes criticized for using a generally diatonic rather than a chromatic musical idiom, and having a tendency toward melodrama, Verdi’s masterworks dominate the standard repertoire a century and a half after their composition.
