Wiener Staatsoper

Il Trovatore

Direction:Daniele Abbado
Stage: Graziano Gregori
Light: Alessandro Carletti
Costumes: Carla Teti

Premiere: 5. 2. 2017

Ever since it was first performed in Rome, Verdi's Il trovatore – the second work in his “trilogia popolare” – has undoubtedly remained one of the best known and most popular works of operatic literature. Small wonder, therefore, that the main roles of this opera have topped the wish lists of the leading performing artists of every generation of singers ever since. After an absence of 16 long years, the troubadour now returns to the Wiener Staatsoper. Incidentally, Verdi originally intended to develop Azucena as an important female character, and envisaged Leonora only as a secondary role.
