Director David Bösch makes his UK debut with a new production of Verdi’s searing tragic opera at the Royal Opera House.

In this classic tale of suspicion, illicit love and retribution, Il Trovatore sees the Count di Luna fall in love with Leonora, but she loves Manrico, the Count’s military enemy.

Spinning events in the background is Manrico’s mother, Azucena, seeking vengeance for the persecution of her own mother for witchcraft. Tragedy ensues as figures of power become blinded by revenge.

German director David Bösch, celebrated for his theatrical productions for Munich and Frankfurt among others, makes his UK debut with this new production for The Royal Opera.

The opera’s themes of jealousy, revenge and love play out against a hauntingly beautiful, wintry landscape that has been riven by war.

Sung in Italian with English surtitles.
