THE ROYAL OPERA LIVE presents Il Trovatore
International superstars Dmitri Hvorostovsky, Anita Rachvelishvili, Lianna Haroutounian and Gregory Kundelead lead a superb cast of world-class singers in this Verdi classic. Il Trovatore is a tale of love and vengeance, disaster and murder.
In this staging director David Bösch sets the story against the backdrop of war. Fire and snow in the landscape echo its cruelty and passion: soldiers and gypsies clash, a mother reveals a terrible secret and two men are engaged in a deadly fight for one woman.
Musical highlights include the famous Anvil Chorus as well as impassioned love duets, fiery solos and stirring choruses.
