Verdi: Il Trovatore
Four extraordinary singers star in one of Verdi’s most popular operas. Libretto by Salvadore Cammarano and Leone Emanuele Bardare, based on the play El trovador by Antonio García Gutiérrez.
Acclaim for this Trovatore: “Álvarez made a stalwart, passionate, masculine figure … Radvanovsky has all the technical devices necessary for Leonora, and she is, moreover, a passionate actress … Hvorostovsky sang with superb, flawless line, total control and long, flowing high notes … Zajick held down Azucena powerfully, lacking nothing obvious of the mad gypsy’s force of character … The opera’s end I have never seen staged or acted more convincingly” (Opera Today).
Extras: Backstage at the Met with Sondra Radvanovsky, Marcelo Álvarez and others.
