Lyric Opera welcomes new talent for ‘Il Trovatore’
“…the music makes this one of Verdi’s masterpieces – an opera’s opera, an instant success. The melodies are infectious and instantly recognizable, the coloring of the orchestration dramatic and arresting, the rhythms churn with urgency and all with a stunning display of vocal prowess.”
