Arizona Opera Presents Il Trovatore at Phoenix Symphony Hall This Weekend

For centuries, countless productions of Giuseppe Verdi's opera Il Trovatore have been staged around the world. After a 20-year absence from the Arizona stage, the classic love tale will re-invent itself March 1, 2, and 3 at Phoenix Symphony Hall using state-of-the-art, high-tech stage equipment.

Dating back to the early 1800s, Il Trovatore made its signature debut in Rome. The production is based on the Spanish playwright Antonio Garcia Gutierrez work El Trovador, which signifies a timeless interpretation of vengeance, passion, and jealousy.
