Due to the corona pandemic, the Metropolitan Opera is closed during the autumn of 2020. In order not to disappoint their opera fans around the world, Met instead offers some of his most acclaimed sets in reruns. Il Trovatore is the second in the series we are proud to present and it was recorded in October 2015.
Anna Netrebko plays Leonora, the tormented heroine in Verdi's Il Trovatore. Dmitri Hvorostovsky is Count of Luna. It was the first time the Russian stars met on the Met stage since 2002. The main character in the opera, Manrico, is performed by Yonghoon Lee. Štefan Kocán is Ferrando and Dolora Zajick plays her favorite role as the unfortunate Azucena.
Verdi's turbulent tragedy with four characters trapped in a tangle of family ties, politics and love is one of the cornerstones of the opera repertoire. The music is as melodic as it is energetic, with infectious pieces you remember. The powerful music accompanies a dark story that wallows in many of the most extreme expressions of romance.
The opera originally takes place in northern Spain in the early 15th century, during a protracted civil war. The audience of the Romantic era saw civil war as a kind of social schizophrenia, where people could be easily torn apart, by fortunes and loyalties being able to change quickly. The set of Met takes place during the Spanish War of Independence (1808–1814), when Spain and its allies fought against Napoleon's forces.
