For the final instalment of the 2020 Opera Concert Series, Cork Opera House presents a concert performance of Il trovatore. A story of witchcraft, murder, and vengeance, Verdi’s searing tragic opera tells how inherited hatred shared through blood ties never seems to end in a society divided between the aristocracy and the Romani community. This Verdi masterpiece features some of the most rousing choruses and arias in any of his operas including The Anvil Chorus, Azucena’s Stride la vampa and Manrico’s heroic Di quella pira.

Each of the concerts in the 2020 series will once again feature our very own Cork Opera House Concert Orchestra conducted by John O’Brien, a chorus from Cork Operatic Society, and internationally celebrated soloists.
