“Il trovatore” is a four-act opera based on Antonio García Gutiérrez’s play entitled “El trovatore.” It was crafted by Verdi with the aid of Salvadore Cammarano who did the Italian libretto.
Verdi, being a prevalent musical prodigy, had revolutionized the new musical expression. He explored the complexity of the characters through his music, combining dramatic yet bizarre twist of agony,jealousy, obsession and trauma through arias, cabalettas, and cantabiles using strings, harp, bass drum, and castanets, to name a few.
To top it all, the opera requires four of the world’s best singers to be able to justify the best of the emotional journey.
