Event Info

A gypsy woman is burnt at the stake for witchcraft accused of cursing the health of one of Count di Luna’s twin boys. Her daughter, Azucena, having witnessed the burning, vows to avenge her death and takes the baby, Manrico to throw him in into the flames, but in her grief she loses her own son. Some 15 years later, the new Count di Luna loves Leonora, but she loves Manrico. As the tangled web of deceit unravels Leonora sacrifices herself for Manrico’s protection with tragic consequences.

One of the greatest of all operas, Il trovatore (‘The Troubadour’) features a rousing score including the instantly recognisable Anvil Chorus. Mary Elizabeth Williams returns to WNO as Leonora in WNO’s timeless production, last performed in 2011.
