Opera Composers

Giacomo Puccini

Claudio Monteverdi

(1567–1643)

 

 

Claudio Monteverdi is generally regarded as the first major opera composer.

His "Orfeo" in 1607 was followed by works such as "Il Ritorno d'Ulisse" and "L'Incoronazione di Poppea", one of the earliest operas that retains its place in the present-day operatic repertoire.
