About Opera Australia presents IL Trovatore

This burning tale of gypsies, witchcraft, murder and recompense demands four of the world’s most powerful voices.

Blinded by rage as her mother burns at the stake, Azucena throws the executioner’s child into the flames. But in the darkness, she has made a fatal mistake, and it is her own child that burns. She seizes the executioner’s child and raises him as her own: a family secret that will haunt the next generation until their deaths.

Verdi had a taste for high drama, and IL Trovatore has all the hallmarks of a great story, enhanced by monumental digital stagecraft: a love triangle, an intergenerational quest for revenge, and a woman willing to make the ultimate sacrifice for the man she loves.

But the real attraction lies in the sensational music: from the famous Anvil Chorus to the series of stunning arias penned for the four leads. It is some of Verdi’s finest music, and demands the finest of voices.

Hear the incomparable Leah Crocetto as Leonora, Elena Gabouri as the haunted Azucena, audience favourite Yonghoon Lee as the title character Manrico and Maksim Aniskin as Count di Luna.
