Lyric Opera of Chicago presents Verdi's Il Trovatore in a revival of the acclaimed production from renowned director Sir David McVicar, conducted by Asher Fisch. It opens Monday, October 27 with 8 performances through Saturday, November 29. Performance dates: Oct. 27, Nov. 12, 15, 18, 21, and 29 at 7:30pm; and Nov. 5 and 9 at 2pm.

One of the most memorably melodic and dramatically barnstorming of all romantic Italian operas, Il Trovatore centers on the gypsy Azucena (mezzo-soprano Stephanie Blythe), who has raised Manrico (tenor Yonghoon Lee) as her son. She harbors a dark secret, however, as to his true birth. Both a troubadour and a warrior, Manrico is in love with the noblewoman Leonora (soprano Amber Wagner), who is also loved by Manrico's enemy, Count di Luna (baritone Quinn Kelsey).
