The Royal Opera House: Il trovatore (NR) 2/26/2017
Richard Farnes, Lianna Haroutounian - 3 hr. 0 mins.
photoIl trovatore is one of the great operas of the Romantic period, a story of passion and blood, love and vengeance, disaster and murder.

New in the 2015/16 Season, this atmospheric and poetic staging by director David Bösch puts the story of passion against the backdrop of war. Fire and snow in the landscape echo the cruelty and love of the story: soldiers and gypsies clash, a mother reveals a terrible secret and two men are engaged in a deadly fight for one woman. The famous Anvil Chorus is just one of the highlights of Verdi's exceptionally fine music, which captures the shifting emotions of the drama through impassioned love duets, fiery solos and stirring choruses.

The Royal Opera House: Madama Butterfly (NR) 5/7/2017
Antonio Pappano, Ermonela Jaho - 2 hr. 45 mins.
photoPuccini's Madama Butterfly is one of the most popular of all operas, with ravishing music and a heartbreaking story of a loving geisha deserted by a callous American husband. Much-loved soprano Ermonela Jaho sings the title role for the first time at Covent Garden, in Moshe Leiser and Patrice Caurier's stunningly beautiful production.

The exotic imagery of the Nagasaki setting is drawn from 19th-century Western artists' romanticized views of Japan. Puccini's music brings alive the birdsong of the morning, the ritual of a wedding and the seduction by naval officer B.F. Pinkerton (sung by exciting young tenor Marcelo Puente) of his young, innocent bride. Well known moments include the impassioned aria ‘Un bel dì' (One fine day) as the abandoned Cio-Cio-San clings vainly to her dreams.
