Il Trovatore

Director: David Bosch
Composer -- Verdi
Conductor -- Richard Farnes; Cast: (the cast may change on different dates) Maria Agresta, Roberto Alagna, Lianna Haroutounian, Dmitri Hvorostovsky

"Il Trovatore" contains some of Verdi's best known arias including "Stride la vampa", "Di quella pira" and the "Anvil Chorus".

It tells the story of Count di Luna, who loves Leonora, but Leonora loves Manrico -- the Count's mortal enemy. The Count manages to capture Manrico and his mother, but Leonora promises herself to him if he will let them have their freedom. But there are no happy endings in opera... and Leonora takes poison and dies in Manrico's arms. The Count then takes his revenge on Manrico... but at what cost?
