OPERA IL TROVATORE at the FOX THEATER REDWOOD CITY
Original post made by JEnny Studley, Atherton: West Atherton, on Feb 24, 2013
Hear some of Verdiâ€™s most melodious music including his exciting Anvil Chorus sung by Spanish gypsies. It is full of dramatically
powerful scenes: tales of flames at the stake, kidnapping and revenge master-minded by Azucena, the conniving gypsy woman;
a mysterious troubadour and Leonora who loses her heart to him; the drama of war waged on a castle fortress;
and two brothers separated at birth who unknowingly become mortal enemies. Set in Spain in the early 15th century,
the story is told by three separate, intertwining sub-plots, rich with colorful history.
