    As much as I love Traviata I still think it is the weakest of the three peak operas of the middle period. Rigoletto is close to perfect as an opera and Il Trovtore i love in spite, or perhaps...

    If I'm honest while I love Caro Nome. I also think that the latter half of act 1 is the most sedate part of the opera. Saying this however I also think Verdi excels himself here as well (sedate or...

    In exploring Verdi further I will always recommend Un Ballo In Maschera and Rigoletto those two are real winners if you enjoyed Il Trovatore though Rigoletto is possibly Verdi's most upsetting opera.
