Il Trovatore returns to the Met in a revival the New York Times calls “rousing, satisfying, truly fun.” David McVicar’s vivid production keeps the action moving in Verdi’s intense melodrama, which includes some of the composer’s most memorable music. Carmen Giannattasio, Patricia Racette, Angela Meade, Gwyn Hughes Jones, Marco Berti, Franco Vassallo, and Alexey Markov take on leading roles, with a pair of star mezzos sharing the role of the gypsy Azucena: Stephanie Blythe and Dolora Zajick.

A co-production of the Metropolitan Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago, and the San Francisco Opera Association.
