Met's encore stream: Verdi's 'Il Trovatore' with Álvarez, Hvorostovsky and Radvanovsky from New York
Verdi's 'Il Trovatore' is an opera in four acts to an Italian libretto largely written by Salvadore Cammarano, based on the play El trovador (1836) by Antonio García Gutiérrez. Ferrando, the captain of the guards, orders his men to keep watch while Count di Luna wanders restlessly beneath the windows of Leonora, lady-in-waiting to the Princess. Di Luna loves Leonora and is jealous of his successful rival, a troubadour whose identity he does not know. Performers:
