Giuseppe Verdi

Giuseppe Verdi was an Italian opera composer. From a young age, he developed a musical education with the help of a patron and soon dominated the Italian opera. In fact by his 30s, he became one of the most influential opera composer all over the classical scene. His most famous operas are Il Trovatore, Rigoletto and La Traviata. Furthermore, he was able to establish himself as a landowner with the income from his successful operas and focus on his private life. However, he soon returned to the scene with his new popular work Aida (1871), and three masterpieces: Otello, Requiem and Falstaff.

Giacomo Puccini

Giacomo Puccini was an Italian opera composer of the late 19th century. He was considered one of the greatest composers of the Italian Opera, second only to Verdi. His early works were characterised by features of the traditional 19th century romantic Italian opera. Later, his style developed into the realistic verismo style, which inspired him to write his most famous masterpieces and became one of the leading exponents of the style. His most renowned works La bohème (1896), Tosca (1900), Madama Butterfly (1904), and Turandot (1924), all are popular operas played in the most prestigious venues of the classical world.

Gaetano Donizetti

Gaetano Donizetti was an Italian composer of the early 19th century. He was one of the leading composers of the bel canto opera style along with Gioachino Rossini and Vincenzo Bellini. Over the course of his career, Donizetti wrote almost 70 operas both comic and serious. His first notable success came with a serious opera, Zoraida di Granata, which was presented in 1822 in Rome. As a result, he made a major impact on the Italian and international opera scene and shifted the attention to opera seria (noble and "serious" style operas). However, his best-known works include comedies such as L'elisir d'amore (1832) and Don Pasquale (1843).

Ruggero Leoncavallo

Ruggero Leoncavallo went down in music history as the creator of the opera masterpiece "Pagliacci". Additionally he was known for representing a new artistic style verism whose followers focused on everyday subject matters instead of heroic deeds and legendary characters. He was born in Naples in 1857. When Leoncavallo was 8 he got accepted to the San Pietro a Majella Conservatory, where he studied for eight years. Besides his passion for music, he showed great interest in literature and later studied at the philological department of the University of Bologna. This knowledge helped him later to write librettos for his musical works. In 1879 he tavelled to Egypt to live with his uncle and work as a pianist and teacher at the court of the Egyptian Khedive Tewfil Pasha. However, three years later he was forced to leave the country due to the outbreak of war. He move to France, where he worked as a pianist and songwriter in cafes and music halls. In 1887 he returned to Milan and concentrated on writing operas in the new verismo style. Five years later he finally achieved long-awaited success for his opera Pagliacci. Leoncavallo himself claimed, the plot was based on a real murder trial which his father, a magistrate, reviewed in court when he was a child. It is still considered to be the best operas of the verismo genre and is still frequently performed to this day.

Eduardo Di Capua

Eduardo di Capua was an Italian composer of the late 19th century. His father was a musician and introduced him to the world of music. In fact, he travelled with his father to many European countries. During one of his journeys to the Ukraine in 1898, he composed the famous melody of "O sole mio" together with the poet Giovanni Capurro. O sole mio would become an unofficial, romantic Italian anthem. Funily enough, at the 1920 Olympic Games in Antwerp supposedly the conductor of the band could not find the music for the actual Italian national anthem and instead he played "O Sole Mio."
