Description

Il Trovatore (2 CD)
ARTIST: Antonio Pappano
Label: PRX/Warner Classics/Parlophone
Release Date: 05/04/18

“More and more I’m finding the real Italian in me,” said British-born, American-trained Antonio Pappano shortly after making this recording of Il trovatore. With its complex plot, volcanic emotions and outpourings of melody, Verdi’s fiery drama is often judged the quintessential Italian opera.

Pappano conducts a cast that can rise to its thrilling challenges, with Roberto Alagna in the title role of Manrico, the troubadour, Thomas Hampson as his antagonist, Angela Gheorghiu as the object of both their affections and Larissa Diadkova as the opera’s pivotal figure, Azucena, a woman haunted by the past
 

History

Giuseppe Verdi’s Il Trovatore 

One of the most enduringly popular operas in the repertoire, Il Trovatore was first seen at Rome’s Teatro Apollo in 1853. Together with Rigoletto and La Traviata, it forms the “trilogy” of works that premiered in rapid succession over a period of just two years and firmly established Verdi as the leading opera composer of his time. The challenges of Il Trovatore’s leading roles famously led Enrico Caruso to remark that all you needed to stage it were the “four best singers in the world.”
