Il Trovatore

1983 NR

A tale of civil war and treachery, Giuseppe Verdi's powerful opera follows a nation and a family torn apart as two adversaries are driven to betrayal and murder by desire for the same woman. This Australian Opera recording features the brilliant Dame Joan Sutherland as Leonora, and the fabulous Kenneth Collins and Jonathan Summers as the two men in love with her. Richard Bonynge is at the helm of one of Verdi's most passionate masterpieces.
