Rebroadcast: Verdi's 'Il Trovatore' with Meade, Muehle, Souorouzian and Mayes from Seattle
Verdi's 'Il Trovatore' is an opera in four acts by Giuseppe Verdi 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: Angela Meade: Leonora. Martin Muehle: Manrico. Nora Sourouzian: Azucena. Michael Mayes: Di Luna.
Seattle Opera Choir and Orchestra. Conductor: Carlo Montanaro.
