Giuseppe Verdi (1813–1901) is the preeminent Italian opera composer of the 19th century. His works remain immensely popular today, and are at the core of the opera repertoire.

The libretto by Francesco Maria Piave (1810–1876), Verdi’s principal librettist of the period, is closely based on Victor Hugo’s controversial play Le roi s'amuse ("The king amuses himself").
