Note: One of Verdi’s catchiest opera tunes, La donna è mobile was an immediate hit. Th composer was so certain of its success that he withheld the part from the lead tenor until the eleventh hour lest anyone hear it before the premier. Sure enough, within days every organ grinder in Milan was cranking out Verdi’s new show stopper.
