OPERA IL TROVATORE at the FOX THEATER REDWOOD CITY

Original post made by JEnny Studley, Atherton: West Atherton, on Feb 24, 2013

Bay Shore Lyric Opera in collaboration with Verisimo Opera
Hear some of Verdi’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.
