After its Berlin premiere and 2 summer stations in Salzburg, Netrebko's Leonora in Il Trovatore finally arrives in New York. The production runs with Netrebko from the 25th September to 17th October plus another run in February with different cast members. On the 3rd of October, the David McVicar production will also open the new season of Met's Live in HD. The production is Goya-inspired and quite a classic already, the DVD for the production is available in stores.
Yonghoon Lee is Manrico and Dmitry Hvorostovsky, recently recovered from his brain tumor treatment, is Conte di Luna. Marco Armiliato conducts.
As a little preview, the video below shows Netrebko and Hvorostovsky's Trovatore duet "Udesti? Comme albeggi..." from their Red Square Concert in Moscow 2 summers ago. Its quite LQ, so pardon me.
