Saturday March 19th at 7pm & Sunday March 20th at 3pm –
Boulder Opera presents Il Trovatore by Verdi. This emotional melodrama is set in 16th century Spain and has it all: witchcraft, murder, love, and vengeance.
The jealous Count di Luna is obsessed with Leonora, a young noblewoman in the queen’s service, who does not return his love. She loves the troubadour Manrico, leader of the partisan rebel forces. A bohemian woman and Manrico’s mother, Azucena, seeks revenge for the murder of her mother by di Luna’s father. All of the confluent storylines culminate in a tragedy not to be missed! Conducted by Maestro Jorge Salazar and directed by Gene Roberts, Boulder Opera’s production of Il Trovatore will star Soprano Michelle Diggs-Thompson as Leonora, favorite local Opera tenor Nathan Snyder as Manrico, and Dianela Acosta as Azucena.
Performed in Italian with English supertitles.
This event will accept proof of vaccination or negative COVID-19 test.
