Marco Armiliato conducts the Met in this version of Giuseppe Verdi's opera. The Count Di Luna still harbours hopes that his younger brother may be alive, despite the fact that he has been missing and presumed dead for a number of years. When the Count sets out to court the beautiful Leonora, he is enraged to learn that she already has a lover - the troubadour, Manrico. The Count challenges Manrico to a duel, but will the rivals discover unexpected common ground when they meet face-to-face? Marcelo Alvarez stars.

I found this a deeply disappointing and even infuriating release. What a shame as the sound is terrific.
We have a stout-voiced, physically burly Leonora in the person of Sondra Radvanovsky, whose acting is stolid and vocal voltage on full-throttled category. With this strength, she suits the roles of the amazons like the valkures rather better than the tragic Verdian heroine.
As the evil Count, Hvorostovsky is perhaps the only suitably casted member, and his reprisal of this role is a welcome treat to opera lovers. The aristocratic and autocratic bearings of DH simply blows other Counts di Luna to the dust.
Unfortunately, the same level could not be said of Marcello Alvarez's Manrico.
Clearly more suited to lyrical roles such as La Boheme, Marcello Alvarez is a sadly under-powered Manrico.
His voice lack the incisivness, and his acting is too reserved for the hot-blooded trovatore. His 'di quella pira' is the most 'lyrical' one could get hold of.
MET is clearly miscasting their major operas' main roles.
Try Marco Berti for the next Manrico, Peter Gelb.
The set is a massive revolving affair with a citadel and foreboding stairway. It however revolves to give a seamless transition to the other scenes as appropriate.
Ferrando opens with an explanation of the background to the action to come, sung ably by Stefan Kocan.
When Radvanovsky appears it seems that a treat is in store, her Leonora has a beautifully rounded mobile voice, her phrasing flows easily, an aural delight.
The anvil chorus scene is most entertaining, and well sung. O would love to play an anvil myself, but I am not as well muscled as the on stage blacksmiths.
Azucena is the richly toned mezzo Dolora Zajick, one can always look forward to hearing her.
It makes a change to hear Alvarez other than the Duke in Rigoletto, he does a fine job as Manrico, and is well suited to the role.
Hvorostovsky makes a grand glowering villain, one can really enjoy his powerful baritone. My wife loves his hair!
All minor roles and chorus are to a very high standard. This is by far the best Trovatore that I have seen. I thoroughly recommend.

Perhaps the best way to stage 'Il Trovatore' is to let the story speak for itself and not tamper with it too much. Read morePublished on 5 April 2014 by Iain C. Davidson
