520    Verdi was one of the greatest, the most successful, and 
       the longest-lived of all composers. Nearly a century after
       his death, many of his operas remain in the standard 
       repertory, and some, such as Rigoletto, Il trovatore, La 
       traviata, and Aida, are among the most popular of all 
       operas. 
520 8  Written with the full collaboration of the Verdi family 
       and drawing on a wide range of sources, this is an 
       authoritative re-examination of a long, vigorous, and 
       varied life. The author captures Verdi's tremendous energy,
       creativity, and philanthropy, and offers fresh insights 
       into the complexities involved in the composition and 
       production of his operas. She also explores his possessive
       love for his home region and his tireless devotion to his 
       farmlands, and examines Verdi's professional and personal 
       relationships, particularly with Giuseppina Strepponi, his
       mistress and later wife. The first major biography of 
       Verdi for a generation, this is a fitting study of a great
       composer and a great patriot of Italian nationalism.
