ROH: Il trovatore

The first revival of David Bösch’s new production, conducted by Richard Farnes AND starring Dmitri Hvorostovsky, Anita Rachvelishvili, Lianna Haroutounian and Gregory Kunde.    

International superstars Dmitri Hvorostovsky, Anita Rachvelishvili, Lianna Haroutounian and Gregory Kunde lead a superb cast of world-class singers in this Verdi classic.  

Il trovatore is one of the great operas of the Romantic period, a story of passion and blood, love and vengeance, disaster and murder.   New in the 2015/16 Season, this atmospheric and poetic staging by director David Bösch puts the story of passion against the backdrop of war. Fire and snow in the landscape echo the cruelty and love of the story: soldiers and gypsies clash, a mother reveals a terrible secret and two men are engaged in a deadly fight for one woman.

The famous Anvil Chorus is just one of the highlights of Verdi’s exceptionally fine music, which captures the shifting emotions of the drama through impassioned love duets, fiery solos and stirring choruses.  

Approximate running time 3 hours, INCLUDING ONE INTERVAL, plus a 15-minute introduction. SUNG IN ITALIAN WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES
