Il Trovatore — Verdi

Rounding off the season perfectly, another Verdi classic not seen in Motcombe before, brought to you LIVE from the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden.  It’s not the most uplifting story but that’s opera and there’s some great music, for example the famous Anvil Chorus.

A devastating curse rises from the ashes in this monumental tale of superstition and rivalry. Passions run high as Manrico and the Count di Luna compete for the affections of Leonora. Little do they know, Manrico’s mother Azucena has been keeping a terrible secret for decades. Soon a curse from the past will rise up from the ashes with devastating implications for them all.  Starring  Ludovic  Tézier  and  Jamie  Barton,  Adele  Thomas’s  energetic  staging  sets  Verdi’s  tale  in  a Hieronymus Bosch-inspired universe of medieval superstition. Antonio Pappano conducts Verdi’s dramatic score, which features the famous ‘Anvil’ chorus.

Running time: 3 hours and 25 minutes (including one interval)
