Anna Netrebko Opera Film Series 

 

Il Trovatore (2014)

 

Music: Giuseppe Verdi

Libretto: Salvadore Cammarano

 

Director: Alvis Hermanis

Conductor: Daniele Gatti

Cast: Anna Netrebko, Plácido Domingo, Francesco Meli, Marie-Nicole Lemieux

Orchestra: Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra 

 

A critically acclaimed production, Anna Netrebko shines as Leonora in Verdi’s tragic opera Il Trovatore at the side of Placido Domingo and the brilliant Francesco Meli as her lover the troubadour Manrico. The strong cast is complemented by Marie-Nicole Lemieux, who as the gypsy Azucena provides spine-chilling and dramatic moments. Director Alvis Hermanis sets the production inside a museum. The tourist guides and museum guards in modern day dress gradually become the characters they describe in the paintings. 
 
The plot revolves round two rival brothers Manrico and Count di Luna falling in love with the same woman, Leonora. Her heart belongs to Manrico. In order to save her lover, Leonora offers herself to Count di Luna but secretly takes poison to preserve her fidelity. The brothers only learn that they are related at the moment of Leonora’s death.
