Boulder Opera presents Il Trovatore by Verdi. This emotional melodrama is set in 16th century Spain and has it all: witchcraft, murder, love, and vengeance.
The jealous Count di Luna is obsessed with Leonora, a young noblewoman in the queen’s service, who does not return his love. She loves the troubadour Manrico, leader of the partisan rebel forces. A bohemian woman and Manrico’s mother, Azucena, seeks revenge for the murder of her mother by di Luna’s father. All of the confluent storylines culminate in a tragedy not to be missed!
Maestro Jorge Salazar conducts an ensemble orchestra with direction by Gene Roberts. Boulder Opera’s production of Il Trovatore will star Soprano Michelle Diggs-Thompson as Leonora and favorite local Opera Tenor Nathan Snyder as Manrico.
