Giuseppe Verdi's Il Trovatore returns to the Met in a revival the New York Times calls "rousing, satisfying, truly fun." Verdi’s intense melodrama includes some of the composer’s most memorable music. Patricia Racette is in the role of Leonora, Marco Berti sings Manrico, and Alexey Markov is the Count, with star mezzo Stephanie Blythe as the deadly gypsy Azucena. Saturday, January 12, 1 to 4 pm.

A co-production of the Metropolitan Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago, and the San Francisco Opera Association

Cast:

Conductor: Daniele Callegari
