Passions run high as Manrico and the Count di Luna compete for the affections of Leonora.  Little do they know, Manrico’s mother Azucena has been keeping a terrible secret for decades.  Soon a curse from the past will rise up from the ashes with devastating implications for them all.  Starring Ludovic Tézier and Jamie Barton, Adele Thomas’s energetic staging sets Verdi’s tale in a Hieronymus Bosch-inspired universe of medieval superstition.  Antonio Pappano conducts Verdi’s dramatic score, which features the famous ‘Anvil’ chorus.
