Giacomo Puccini has been called "the greatest composer of Italian opera after Verdi" (Ravenni and Girardi). While his early work was rooted in traditional late-19th-century romantic Italian opera, he successfully developed his work in the realistic verismo style, of which he became one of the leading exponents.
