Seattle Opera Podcast

May 20, 2020

Are you ready for this weekend (May 23)'s KING FM rebroadcast, the wildest opera by the person many consider opera’s greatest composer? Seattle Opera Dramaturg Jonathan Dean introduces Il trovatore, with musical examples from Seattle Opera’s archival recordings of Il trovatore: from 1997, with Carol Vaness (Leonora) and Gegam Grigorian (Manrico), and Gordon Hawkins (Count Di Luna), conducted by Antonello Allemandi; and from 2010, with Malgorzata Walewska (Azucena), Antonello Palombi (Manrico), and Gordon Hawkins (Count Di Luna) conducted by Yves Abel.
