First performed in Rome in 1853, Il Trovatore is one of Giuseppe Verdi's most successful and most performed operas. Supremely melodic, vigorously paced, it is filled with arias and vocal ensembles of thrilling power. Grand opera at its most stirring, it is above all rich in opportunities for bravura singing. Music lovers can savour and study in detail Verdi's scoring of this perennial operatic favourite with this finely made full-score edition.
