Il Trovatore (CD) - Callas

This by now and long-legendary 1953 live recording of Giuseppe Verdi’s Il Trovatore features a cast, conductor and orchestra that makes it difficult to imagine better. Led by Maria Callas and Carlo Tagliabue as Leonora and Count di Luna, the cast also features Ebe Stignani, Gino Penno and Giuseppe Modesti, among others. The legendary conductor Antonino Votto, often partnered with Ms. Callas, in this period, leads the Orchestra and Chorus of La Scala, Milan, in this gripping, ever-popular operatic drama.


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.”
