Verdi’s Il Trovatore mesmerizes audiences with its scorching tale of the vengeful gypsy Azucena, her son Manrico’s romance with the noblewoman Leonora, and his rivalry with the Conte di Luna. From the raucous Anvil Chorus to the hair-raising tenor aria “Di quella pira,” a superb cast will carry the opera to its jaw-dropping finale.

This acclaimed production sweeps the audience into a sepulchral Romanesque hall that is at once castle, gypsy camp and lovebirds’ haven.
