What Are Some of the More Popular Verdi Arias?

Of the more than 200 arias composed by Giuseppe Verdi, some of the most popular are “La donna e mobile” from the opera "Rigoletto" and “Miserere” from "Il Trovatore." Other popular arias include “E Strano” and “Addio del passato” from "La Traviata," one of his most well-known operas.

Verdi wrote most of his well-known arias during his “middle period”, a time where he composed "Rioletto," "Il Trovatore" and "La Traviata." Critics admire these works for their infusion of dramatic melody and Italian passion. Verdi composed his last aria for the opera "Falstaff." It debuted in 1893, when Rossini was 80 years old.
