Verdi’s classic can be seen until 29 July in a version based on the dark images painted by Francisco de Goya.
‘Il Trovatore’ is one of Giuseppe Verdi’s best operas and one of the most important works of his productive middle period during which he also composed 'La Traviata' and 'Rigoletto'. The story explores the themes of hatred and evil, through the story of two brothers who are separated at birth, and therefore do not know each other and become rivals for the love of the same woman; circumstance that leads them to a bloodthirsty confrontation and death. Stage director Joan Anton Rechi came to the conclusion that this story is so dark that it deserved an equally black, tenebrous staging and adapted the series of paintings 'The Disasters of War' by Francisco de Goya for this updated production at the Liceu.
This production premiered last Monday and will be on stage until Saturday 29 July, so there are only four functions to go before the end of the opera season. So, if you want to take advantage of this last opportunity to see a new take on Verdi’s classic make for the Liceu this coming week.
You’ll find additional information and ticket sales at the Liceu website.
