Giuseppe Verdi's four-act opera Il trovatore (The Troubadour) is one of his most successful operas. It premiered at the Teatro Apollo in Rome in January 1853, where it "began a victorious march throughout the operatic world." Today, Il trovatore is performed in its Italian version frequently and all over the world. The performance captured on this new release took place in the Summer of 1964, and features the Orchestra e Coro del Teatro dell'Opera di Roma conducted by Thomas Schippers. The cast of soloists is impressive, and includes Gabriella Tucci as Leonora, Fanco Corelli as Manrico, and Robert Merrill as Il Conte di Luna. This production has been rarely recorded, but is a worthy addition to any Verdi lover.
