Synopsis: The Royal Opera presents Verdi’s tragic masterpiece Il Trovatore, a harrowing tale of love, revenge and war full of spine-tingling arias and powerful chorus numbers including the world famous “Anvil Chorus.” To be recorded live in 2017, Il Trovatore tells the tale of star-crossed lovers, Manrico and Leonora, who are intertwined with the fate of the Manrico’s mother the gypsy Azucena, who is seeking vengeance for the murder of her own mother by the di Luna family. This will be the first revival of German director David Bösch’s production, which received critical acclaim for its debut in June 2016, starring both Armenian soprano Lianna Haroutounian as Leonora, American tenor Gregory Kunde as Manrico from the original production, and Russian baritone Dmitri Hvorostovsky as Count di Luna. Audiences are invited to experience this powerful opera with its story of love, feuding families and a gypsy curse, all set to Verdi’s soaring score. Sung in Italian, with English subtitles.
