Conducted by Richard Farnes, "Il Trovatore" strikingly pulls out the opera's prominent themes of jealousy, revenge and love against a hauntingly beautiful wintry landscape. The superb international cast includes Armenian soprano Lianna Haroutounian, American tenor Gregory Kunde, Georgian mezzo Anita Rachvelishvili and Ukrainian baritone Vitaliy Bilyy. "Many are the directors who have refused the challenge of Verdi’s Il Trovatore, and one can hardly blame them... At least David Bösch has had a bash. He makes his Covent Garden debut with a production that promises something a little different – a dreamlike environment, designed by Patrick Bannwart. His imagery works wonders, creating an atmosphere in which the canons of ordinary reality do not apply.“ (The Daily Telegraph)
