Written for exceptional singers, Il Trovatore has remained popular ever since its first performance at the Teatro Apollo in Rome on January 19, 1853, when even the toughest critics were convinced of its place in the repertoire. People are attracted to Il Trovatore because of its rousing melodies, its brutal, powerful plot, and its simple structure: elements that make it one of the best examples of Verdi’s theatre pieces. Recorded live at the Sferisterio theatre of Macerata in the summer of 2016, under conductor Daniel Oren’s vibrant and incisive baton, this production boasts a first-rate cast and elegant direction from Francisco Negrin.

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.”
