Il trovatore

Lyric Opera of Chicago presents Verdi’s masterpiece, a tale of love, jealousy, and retribution based on the play by Antonio García Gutiérrez.

Il Trovatore

  • Directed by Sir David McVicar and conduced by Marco Armiliato.
  • Sung in Italian with projected English translations.

Set in the smoldering atmosphere of darkly mysterious 15th-century Spain, the drama presents the stories of Manrico, his beloved Leonora, the vengeful Count di Luna, and the wild, obsessed gypsy Azucena. The Anvil Chorus, Leonora’s Miserere, and Manrico’s stirring call to arms are just a few of the highlights of Verdi’s masterpiece, a story of war, love, and revenge.
