Available for each of the 26 Tutto Verdi operas are short introductions with a length of ten minutes each, which not only tell us the storyline of the respective opera work, point out the musical highlights and references, but also put the same into personal and historical context. Context like the death of his two children and his beloved wife within three consecutive years at a very young age, or the failure of Opera premieres, such as the one of La Traviata at La Fenice, and of course the struggle of Italy for independence and unification. For Verdi, who was a fervent patriot, this was a constant subject which he addresses in many of his operas.
