What is Il Trovatore about?
Spain is torn by civil war and Count di Luna, the commander of the Royalist Aragon troops, is obsessed with the young noblewoman Leonora who does not return his feelings. She resides in the royal residence and the count's soldiers keep guard.
At night time, a mysterious troubadour has been heard serenading outside Leonoras window and the jealous count is determined to catch him. To keep his guards awake, captain Ferrando tells an awful story about a gypsy woman who was burnt at stake years ago for bewitching the count's infant brother.
Leonora confesses to her companion that she is in love with the troubadour. She hears him sing again and rushes out to meet him but is catched by di Luna.
The troubadour reveals his true identity which is Manrico, leader of the partisan rebel forces. The count is furious and challenges Manrico for a duel.
This is only the beginning of this dramatic story about love, life and war.
Sung in Italian with Met Titles in English, German, Italian, and Spanish
