If you’re a fan of the NBC show Hannibal, then you might have noticed the beautiful opera music that plays in the background of some scenes. Here’s a look at what that music is and where it comes from.

The A-Team Theme Song

Many people who watch the Hannibal TV show wonder what the opera music is that is often playing in the background. The music is actually the A-Team theme song, which is called “Theme from the A-Team.”

The Battle of the Bulge

The Battle of the Bulge was an important turning point in World War II. It was a Battle in which the Allied forces stopped the last major German offensive of the war. The music in Hannibal is from this Battle.

The D-Day Landing

The D-Day landing was an epic moment in World War II, and the music that accompanied it was just as epic. The soundtrack to the event was composed by Giuseppe Verdi, and it has come to be known as the “D-Day Landing Opera.”

The music is stirring and emotional, and it is easy to see why it was chosen to accompany such a momentous event. It is a masterful piece of work, and it is no wonder that it has become so iconic.

The Battle of Gettysburg

On July 1, 1863, the first day of the Battle of Gettysburg, Confederate General Henry Heth’s division met Union resistance just south of the town of Gettysburg. The fight quickly became a battle when additional Confederate troops arrived and more Union troops marched to the sound of the guns. The Battle of Gettysburg officially began.
