Details

Blood brothers, separated at birth, become deadly rivals in love and in war. A mother, burnt at the stake for bewitching a child, is avenged by her gypsy daughter. A beautiful aristocrat sacrifices her honour to save the man she loves. The hot Spanish passions of these interwoven stories are distilled by Verdi into a score which for sheer tunefulness and vocal glory has no equal in his entire output. The immortal love songs of the principal characters contrast with the Anvil Chorus, the Soldiers Chorus and the matchless tension of the Miserere to create the essence of Italian opera. New production sung in Italian with surtitles. This production originated at Scottish Opera. Running time approx. 3 hrs.

Performers Yuri Nechaev (Count di Luna), Iain Paterson (Ferrando to Nov 21), Brindley Sherratt (from Dec 3), David Rendall (Manrico), Patricia Bardon (Azucena), Elena Lasovskaya (Leonora Nov 3 - Nov 7 and Dec 3/5), Gweneth-Ann Jeffers (Leonora Nov 12-21 and Dec 10/12).
