Rivals in love. Mistaken identity. A gypsy burned at the stake. Il Trovatore is a treasure trove of dramatic thrills, set in the medieval kingdom of Aragon in Spain. Amid turmoil and jealousy, Leonora and Manrico, a troubadour, fight for their love against the powerful Count di Luna. Manrico’s gypsy mother, bent on vengeance for the death of her own mother, proves to be a pivotal force in deciding who lives and who dies.
In this enthralling new production of Il Trovatore, not seen in Arizona for nearly 20 years, dramatic stage elements combine with richly colored landscapes to evoke the story’s emotions. Verdi’s ever-popular opera includes the “Anvil Chorus,” one of the most famous piece of music ever composed, and a wealth of thrilling arias. Sung in Italian with English subtitles.
