Did Verdi and Wagner meet?
Likewise, what is the difference between the operas of Verdi Puccini and Wagner?
As far as I'm concerned, Wagner wrote great music drama, Verdi wrote very good romantic opera, and Puccini wrote crude but entertaining melodramas. Certainly all three were blessed with different talents, but Wagner used his to produce transcendent works of art and Puccini, pap.
Secondly, which of the following operas were written by Verdi? List of operas and revisions
|1||Oberto, conte di San Bonifacio||La Scala, Milan 17 Nov 1839|
|2||Un giorno di regno||La Scala, Milan 5 Sep 1840|
|3||Nabucodonosor||La Scala, Milan 9 Mar 1842|
|4||I Lombardi alla prima crociata||La Scala, Milan 11 Feb 1843|
Keeping this in consideration, what makes Verdi's music so different from Wagner's?
Another important difference between Wagner and Verdi is based on the Nineteenth Century romantic concept of art, interpreted so opposedly by both. For Wagner, German instrumental music was most important; for Verdi, Italian vocal music reigned supreme.
Who is the greatest opera composer?
Puccini was the greatest composer of Italian opera after Verdi.
