Il Trovatore (Verdi): The Met Opera in HD at The Ridgefield Playhouse on September 27 from 2-4:30 pm
An extraordinary cast came together for the first Live in HD transmission of the Met’s 2015–16 season. Anna Netrebko is Leonora, the young noblewoman at the center of the story, who is in love with the troubadour of the title—tenor Yonghoon Lee—but also pursued by Count di Luna, sung by the great Dmitri Hvorostovsky. Dolora Zajick completes the quartet of principals in her signature role of Azucena, the mysterious Gypsy woman who sets the dramatic events in motion. Marco Armiliato conducts David McVicar’s Goya-inspired production.

Opera’s favorite double bill returns on Sunday, September 27 at 2pm, in an evocative production by Sir David McVicar, who sets the action across two time periods but in the same Sicilian village. Marcelo Álvarez rises to the challenge of playing the dual tenor roles of Turiddu in Cavalleria Rusticana and Canio in Pagliacci. Sopranos Eva-Maria Westbroek (Cavalleria Rusticana) and Patricia Racette (Pagliacci) sing the unlucky heroines in these two verismo staples. Then, on Sunday, September 27 at 2pm, a remarkable cast takes the stage in Verdi’s supreme showcase of Italianate singing in this encore presentation of Il Trovatore from the 2015–16 season. Soprano Anna Netrebko is the passionate young noblewoman Leonora, with tenor Yonghoon Lee as the outlaw Manrico and late baritone Dmitri Hvorostovsky as the menacing Count di Luna. Dolora Zajick completes the quartet of principals in her signature role of Azucena. Marco Armiliato conducts Sir David McVicar’s production.
