I have been told that you do not need to aquire a license in order to use a classical piece within a movie, is this true? In my case, I want to use Giuseppe Verdi's "The Force of Destiny"

The music is public domain, but the performance & recording isn't.
Those are copyrighted.
In other words, if you're going to hire an orchestra to play the piece and pay for the recording sessions, you don't have to pay to use the music.
If you're going to lift a recording of the piece however, you have to pay the owners of that recordings copyright.
