The MET Live in HD season begins with Anna Netrebko in her highly anticipated Met role debut as Leonora, the tortured heroine of Il Trovatore.
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 the 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.
Please join us for a complimentary pre-opera lecture, organized by Kevin O’Halloran, Executive Director of Ash Lawn Opera, in The Paramount Theater Balcony Lounge at 12:15pm. The lecture for Il Trovatore will be conducted by Mary Ann Archer.
