Slide1

Sunset Music | Arts and Verismo Opera present
Verdi’s tragic opera, Il Trovatore

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. For additional information click here.

Violinist Kate Stenberg has been described as “highly virtuosic and deeply communicative …full of character and presence” (New Music Box). Her particular devotion to new music and living composers has been a passion for 25 years and has led to performances worldwide in China, South Korea, Switzerland, France, Germany, England, Canada, Mexico, as well as throughout the USA.

Sarah Cahill, recently called “a sterling pianist and an intrepid illuminator of the classical avant-garde” by the New York Times and “a brilliant and charismatic advocate for modern and contemporary composers” by Time Out New York, has commissioned, premiered, and recorded numerous compositions for solo piano.

Slide2

The overture to La forza del destino makes use of themes from the opera, notably an ominous motif suggesting Fate and Leonora’s second-act aria, Madre, pietosa Vergine (Mother, merciful Virgin). A complex plot, based on what might seem a series of remarkable coincidences and singular failures of perception on the part of the leading players, brings several important and moving duets, notably the closing scene of the second act, where the Father Guardian advises Leonora on the religious life, and the duets between the two younger men, Don Alvaro and Don Carlo, Solenne in quest’ora (In this solemn hour). Leonora’s aria Pace, pace, mio Dio (Peace, peace, my God) in Act IV, movingly expresses her continuing feelings of love, as she lives her solitary life, and before the final tragedy.
