Superstar Angel Blue leads a world-class cast
We are honored to open the season with one of opera's most impassioned masterpieces, Il Trovatore, Verdi’s operatic thriller and its famous Anvil Chorus is an indelible experience in any opera house, but here's why our production will be especially unforgettable:
- Verdi master James Conlon conducts the LAO Orchestra and Chorus
- a remarkable cast led by Angel Blue and Gregory Kunde
- the production is grandly-scaled, atmospheric and adds striking clarity to the intricate plot
In Il Trovatore, the terrible secrets of a gruesome past echo through the generations. When two brothers unwittingly fall in love with the same woman, they unleash a firestorm of fatal reckoning.
