Soprano Anna Netrebko's dramatic and vocal skills are on full display in her next new role at the Met—Leonora, the Verdi heroine who sacrifices her own life for the love of the gypsy troubadour. Tenor Yonghoon Lee sings the ill-fated Manrico, baritone Dmitri Hvorostovsky is his rival, and mezzo-soprano Dolora Zajick is the mysterious gypsy with the troubled past. Angela Meade sings Leonora in later performances. Marco Armiliato conducts Sir David McVicar's Goya-inspired production.

LIBRETTIST Salvadore Cammarano.

In a remarkable career spanning six decades in the theater, Giuseppe Verdi (1813 – 1901) composed 28 operas, at least half of which are at the core of today's repertoire. Salvadore Cammarano (1801 – 1852) was one of the foremost librettists of his day. He collaborated with Donizetti (Lucia di Lammermoor, among others) and wrote the text for La Battaglia di Legnano and Luisa Miller for Verdi. After his death the Trovatore libretto was completed by fellow writer Leone Emanuele Bardare (1820 – after 1874).

In original language with English subtitles.
