Notes & Reviews:

Fiery and full-blooded, Verdi's Il trovatore is a masterpiece of obsession, madness, and revenge with an intricate plot that binds a mysterious gypsy woman, two sworn enemies, and a passionate young woman who must betray her all-consuming love or risk death. In Moshinsky's classic production, recorded live at the Sydney Opera House, Dame Joan Sutherland magnificently portrays tragic heroine Leonora, supported by shining performances from Kenneth Collins as troubadour Manrico and Jonathan Summers as the Count Di Luna. Richard Bonynge conducts the Australian Opera Chorus and the Elizabethan Sydney Orchestra in a performance that emphasizes the power and majesty of this richly melodramatic work. Recorded 1983, Sydney Opera House.
