Il Trovatore played its final performance on Oct. 10.
LA Opera is back in a big way: an epic new-to-LA production of this ever-popular tale of revenge, dangerous passions and fatal mistakes. Two brothers find themselves fighting on opposite sides of a war...and for the love of the same woman.
Verdi virtuoso James Conlon conducts a world-class cast to bring all the high-stakes drama and soaring melodies to life, including the thunderous “Anvil Chorus.” Join us as the curtain rises again.

Important COVID-19 Audience Policy Update:
LA Opera has adopted a temporary vaccination-only policy in addition to requiring masks. These guidelines will be in effect beginning September 1, 2021 and will end as soon as they are deemed no longer necessary. Please click here to review all protocols.
New Breathe Easy Section
Pending availability, LA Opera has made some seats available in certain sections where the seat next to you and your party could be blocked off. Seats in our Breathe Easy Section are extremely limited and available only by calling the Box Office at 213.972.8001.
Pre-performance talk update:
Each season, James Conlon’s pre-show talks are an enormously popular highlight of every performance he conducts. Since Stern Grand Hall is currently unavailable for large, stationary gatherings (due to COVID-19 restrictions), the pre-show talk for Il Trovatore has been reimagined.
This time, James Conlon’s Il Trovatore talk will be filmed and made available to watch from home before or after the performance. Additionally, for three performances of Il Trovatore—September 22, 25 and October 3 —the talk will be screened on large outdoor monitors on the Music Center Plaza for audiences to enjoy, beginning one hour before the opera.
"There were thrillingly big, bold voices. There was an exquisite soprano. There was a chorus, glorious. There was an orchestra sounding so rich and strong and colorful."
