About

World-acclaimed Washington-born singer Denyce Graves stars as the gypsy Azucena, one of the greatest mezzo-soprano roles in all of Italian opera. This Verdi masterpiece is an explosive tale of war, love, and madness, full of operatic favorites from the pounding "Anvil Chorus" to Azucena's searing "Stride la vampa." Conducted by Music Director Heinz Fricke and directed by Stephen Lawless, Washington National Opera treats Verdi's great work to two outstanding casts: Carmen Giannattasio and Krassimira Stoyanova as Leonora, Mikhail Davidoff and Carl Tanner as Manrico, and Wolfgang Brendel and Roberto Servile as Count di Luna.

Performed in Italian with English Supertitles
