Triumphant March Puppet Show

Let's celebrate at the castle! There's a princess, a knight and his horse, a king, jesters and all the people!
Guiseppe Verdi was born in 1813 to Italian parents and wrote music during the Romantic period. He started to learn the organ at a very young age, and by just seven years old, he was an organist at a large church. By 13, he was an assistant orchestra conductor. His wife and two children died very young and left him heart-broken. He promised never to write anything but serious music afterwards. He died after a long, musical like - as a revered figure in Italy. He was almost 90 years old. The Blue Bugs' puppet show, "Triumphant March" is part of his opera, Aida, and is called, "The Grand March".
