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: 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. Composer Giuseppe Verdi; conductor Richard Farnes, Director David Bösch. Sung in Italian with English subtitles.
