Can we run away from the consequences of our actions, or will they haunt us for all eternity? Oscillating between fantasy and reality in a play of shadow and light, this new production of Il Trovatore featuring a stunning cast proves that revenge comes at a heavy price.
Manrico is a young troubadour hopelessly in love with the beautiful Leonora, whose heart he has captured despite the mounting jealousy of the Count di Luna, also enamoured of her. But a far more pernicious fate antagonizes the two men: they are unaware of the brotherly tie that binds them. Azucena, keeper of this family secret, plans to use it to avenge her mother’s death.
