Verdi’s dramatic masterpiece is back at the Royal Opera House for the winter season! Set amidst a cold and war-torn landscape, a tale of love, revenge, and mistaken identity unfolds. Exemplary singing abounds in this production from director David Bösch. From this surplus of stunning vocal talent mezzo-soprano Anita Rachvelishvili stands out as an audience and critic favourite in her powerful portrayal of Azucena. Conductor Richard Farnes also deserves recognition for the emotional energy he brings to the score.

In Italian with English subtitles. Includes one 15 minute intermission.
