Opera Cheat Sheet: Il Trovatore

Listen to our quick (and very funny!) overview of Giuseppe Verdi's Il Trovatore, which is this week’s Houston Grand Opera broadcast airing on Classical 91.7 Saturday at noon.

This week, Classical 91.7's St.John Flynn and Eric Skelly talk about Verdi’s masterpiece Il Trovatore, the story of the gypsy Azucena’s deep and abiding love for her son, and her quest for revenge on those who took her mother’s life, set against the backdrop of 15th-century Spain.

Tune in to hear the Houston Grand Opera production of Il Trovatore, Saturday at noon on Classical 91.7 and online at classical917.org.
