The charm of the Verdian choirs taken from the best known operas joins up with the story of Giuseppe Verdi's life; in particular, the focus is on the events which led Italy to become a unified country and in which Verdi was a central figure. The performance also shows the man Verdi who felt grief for the loss of his children and who enjoyed great success in theatre. On the stage a large choir, the orchestra and different actors, with stage effects and video-projections.
