Love drama? How about a mysterious troubadour, passionate love, kidnapping, poisoning, witches burned at the stake and civil strife? That's just the tip of the iceberg in Il Trovatore, Giuseppe Verdi's action-packed opera featuring some of the legendary Italian composer's most melodious music, including his exciting Anvil Chorus sung by Spanish gypsies. The stakes couldn't be higher as bitter enemies Manrico and Count di Luna battle for the love of Leonora.
