Available on Blu-ray, the Met’s Il Trovatore features four extraordinary singers in one of Verdi's most popular operas. Extras include: Backstage at the Met with Sondra Radvanovsky, Marcelo Álvarez and others.
Opera News expresses acclaim for this Il Trovatore:
"Álvarez made a stalwart, passionate, masculine figure ... Radvanovsky has all the technical devices necessary for Leonora, and she is, moreover, a passionate actress ... Hvorostovsky sang with superb, flawless line, total control and long, flowing high notes ... Zajick held down Azucena powerfully, lacking nothing obvious of the mad gypsy's force of character ... The opera's end I have never seen staged or acted more convincingly."
