New Production! Alex Ollé directs a dream cast. Rather than true characters – excepting perhaps Azucena the Gypsy (Ekaterina Semenchuk), who guards the secret that will destroy them all – Verdi’s music portrays almost abstract figures consumed by passion. Hui He, as the sacrificial heroine Leonora, is accompanied by Marcelo Àlvarez as Manrico and Ludovic Tézier as Il Conte di Luna.
Please note programme change: due to illness, Chinese soprano Hui He replaces the originally billed Anna Netrebko as ‘Leonora’ in the Opéra de Paris cinema broadcast of Il Trovatore this Season. Read more about Hui He here.
