World of Opera encompasses the seminal operas of the 17th century; the comic, political and social satires of the 18th century; the "bel canto" masterpieces of Gaetano Donizetti and Vincenzo Bellini; the revolutionary 19th-century works of Giuseppe Verdi and Richard Wagner; and, of course, operas in the "true-to-life" verismo style of Puccini and Mascagni.
