Leonora and Don Alvaro’s secret elopement goes horribly wrong when Leonora’s father is accidentally killed by Alvaro. Separated in the confusion, the lovers instead seek refuge in spirituality and solitude, but Leonora’s brother hasn’t forgotten and is determined to get revenge. Will fate bring them all together again? Verdi’s epic opera combines love, war, religion, and fate, and is sung by a stellar cast including Sondra Radvanovsky, Brian Jagde and Etienne Dupuis, conducted by Mark Elder.
