Il Trovatore

May 30, 2015
 

The troubadour Manrico and Count di Luna are bitter enemies. But in a twist of fate, they're both in love with Leonora — and they're brothers without knowing it.

Emotions boil in an action-packed story that includes babies switched at birth, kidnapping, mistaken identity, poisoning, civil strife, witches burned at the stake, and a noblewoman who offers herself to a man she hates, to save the man she loves.

High drama and some of the most famous music Verdi ever composed — including the "Anvil Chorus"!

"Il Trovatore is all about excitement — and this David McVicar show delivers it!" The Wall Street Journal
