Il Trovatore was one of the great trios of operas Verdi wrote within a couple of years in the 1850s, along with Rigoletto and La Traviata. The melodramatic plot involves a love triangle between Leonora, who loves Manrico, and the Count di Luna, Manrico’s sworn enemy and, unbeknown to him, his long-lost brother who also loves Leonora. The story is complicated further by Manrico’s mother, Azucena, whose desire for revenge costs the lives of the lovers Leonora and Manrico.
