Il Trovatore is a popular Verdi opera, but you have a chance to see Anna Netrebko and Dmitri Hvorostovsky perform in an encore Met Opera HD performance at a theater near you on Wednesday (Oct 7). This is Mr. Hvorostovsky’s last performance for a while since he returns to London to have a brain tumor treated. We wish him well.
A friend who saw an earlier performance was moved to tears by this powerful performance of gifted artists and great staging. Attend, if you can, and experience the power of opera. There is nothing else quite like great opera to stir the blood cells.
