Verdi's biographer Mary Jane Phillips-Matz talks about the composer's long battle with the censors in some of his most famous works - including `Rigoletto', `La traviata' and `La forza del destino'. She considers how he dealt with this and whether or not he managed to overcome their attempts to stifle his creative powers.
