Il Trovatore

The wheel of fate is turned by a gypsy daughter's revenge


The Count di Luna and Manrico, the troubadour, both love Leonora. She favors Manrico with his midnight serenades. The gypsy Azucena and the di Luna family seek revenge from each other over an incident in the past, which centers on a lost baby brother of the Count. Each of these elements affects the others as the past haunts the present. 


The setting is medieval Spain where jousting, dueling, gypsy camps and burning heretics at the stake are all a part of everyday life. 


Verdi was in his prolific prime when he composed his gem. The music is as good as anything he (or anyone else) ever wrote. The dramatic impact of this surprising story, wedded to Verdi’s incomparable score, gives us an indelible night at the opera.
