The wife of a Protestant preacher as an adulteress - problems with the censor were inevitable from the outset with Verdi's opera Stiffelio, which was premiered in November 1850. Even today the finale seems astonishingly bold: superficially it deals with forgiveness and reconciliation, but the orchestral writing is in such striking contrast that Verdi appears to be tolling the death knell of the protagonists' marriage.
