David McVicar’s Acclaimed Production of “Il Trovatore” Returns to Movie Theaters



Starring four of the world's most celebrated interpreters of the leading roles, David McVicar's critically acclaimed production stars Marcelo Álvarez as the heroic troubadour of the title. In the role of Leonora, Sondra Radvanovsky is "remarkable…a spirited, feisty heroine" (Variety); Dolora Zajick is "a force of nature" (The New York Times) as Azucena, the gypsy with a dark secret; and Dmitri Hvorostovsky's "vivid presence and rich baritone emphasize Count di Luna's swings between hell-bent vengeance and romantic obsession" (Variety). Marco Armiliato conducts. This staging of “Il Trovatore,”  which is visually inspired by Francisco Goya's series of prints entitled "The Disasters of War," features sets by Charles Edwards, costumes by Brigitte Reiffenstuel, lighting by Jennifer Tipton, and choreography by Leah Hausman. Original transmission: Saturday, April 30, 2011. (Running time: approximately 2 hours and 40 minutes including two intermissions.)

Ticket prices vary. More information on tickets and theaters in all participating locations is available at www.fathomevents.com or http://www.metoperafamily.org/hdlive.
