Il trovatore • from September 29 to October 7, 2022
Giuseppe Verdi’s opera Il Trovatore is divided into 4 acts, each with two scenes. Il Trovatore, or Troubadour as it is known in English, was first performed in Rome in 1853. The libretto is by Salvadore Cammarano and is based on the play El trovador by Antonio García Gutiérrez.
In 1851 Giuseppe Verdi proposed to the poet Salvadore Cammarano the opera project based on the title El Trovator by Antonio Garcia Gutierrez. The romantic drama was performed in Spanish in Madrid in 1836.
The opera is set in Aragon and Biscay at the beginning of the 15th century. Aragon is without a king and it is about succession and related intrigues. Love and betrayal, power and imprisonment and ultimately death and guilt are the content of the dramatic story.
The gypsy Azucena is the protagonist of the opera, which is dominated by contradictory passions: the thirst for revenge for her mother’s cruel death due to witchcraft and the love for her adopted son Manrico, the troubadour Garcia. Look forward to beautiful opera arias and a large orchestra with choir.
