Eastgate Theatre and Arts Centre - Auditorium
International superstars Dmitri Hvorostovsky, Anita Rachvelishvili, Lianna
Haroutounian and Gregory Kundelead lead a superb cast of world-class
singers in this Verdi classic. Il Trovatore is a tale of love and
vengeance, disaster and murder. In this staging director David Bösch sets
the story against the backdrop of war. Fire and snow in the landscape echo
its cruelty and passion: soldiers and gypsies clash, a mother reveals a
terrible secret and two men are engaged in a deadly fight for one woman.
Musical highlights include the famous Anvil Chorus as well as impassioned
love duets, fiery solos and stirring choruses.
