King of the Hun.

Attila is a 3-act opera written by Guiseppe Verdi, dated to March 17th 1846. Attila was the leader of the Huns in the 5th century AD and probably the most wanted man in the Roman Empire. The libretto was written by Temistocle Solera, and this particular version was directed by Yves Coudray, the mastermind who put together the production of La Vie Parisienne and The Merry Widow.
