Passions run high as Manrico and Count di Luna compete for the affections of Leonora. Little do they know, Manrico’s mother Azucena has been keeping a terrible secret for decades. Soon a curse from the past will rise up from the ashes with devastating implications for them all.

Starring Marina Rebeka, Rachel Willis-Sorensen, Riccardo Massi, Gregory Kunde, Ludovic Tezier and James Barton, Adele Thomas’s energetic staging sets Verdi’s tale in a Hieronymous-Bosch-inspired universe. Antonio Pappano conducts Verdi’s dramatic score, which features the famous Anvil chorus. (3hr40min with intervals)

Tickets on sale from the 8th May, available from Quinns Bookshop, Three Crowns Yard, The The High Street, Market Harborough (not on Wednesdays), or via
