Location & Date

Festival Ljubljana


Composed in 1853, Il trovatore  is one of the works in which Verdi, with dramaturgical effectiveness, associated specific keys with particular figures or groups in order to clearly represent the differences between the characters and the social ranks they occupied. This year’s performance of the opera is by the Teatro del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, in collaboration with director Stefania Grazioli, in a revival of the production originally directed by Cesare Lievi. The latter has described Il trovatore  as a nocturnal opera in which the characters move in a desolate landscape. The orchestra will be conducted by Zubin Mehta, who during his most recent visit, in 2019, received the Golden Order of Merit from then president of Slovenia, Borut Pahor, in recognition of his supreme contribution to musical performance. The chorus will be directed by Lorenzo Fratini. The main roles will be sung by Leon Kim, who after completing his bachelor’s degree in his native Korea went on to pursue specialised studies in Italy, where he has won several prizes (including first prize at the Cappuccilli-Patanè-Respighi Competition); Carolina López Moreno, who has performed in concert halls such as Carnegie Hall and the Berliner Philharmonie (Berlin Philharmonic); Matteo Desole; and Olesya Petrova, who has worked with acclaimed conductors such as Giordano Bellincampi, Emmanuel Villaume and Valery Gergiev.
