Soprano Anna Netrebko is Leonora, the young noblewoman in love with the troubadour of the title—tenor Yonghoon Lee—but also pursued by Count di Luna, sung by the great baritone Dmitri Hvorostovsky. Mezzo-soprano Dolora Zajick completes the quartet of principals in her signature role of Azucena, the mysterious gypsy woman who sets the dramatic events in motion. Marco Armiliato conducts Sir David McVicar’s Goya-inspired production.
