Act 1

   Night. The soldiers are on guard in the castle of Count di Luna. Ferrando, an officer in Count di Luna’s army, narrates the story about the Count and his brother. One day, when they were babies, an old gypsy came to the castle. Soon after one of the infants fell ill. A curse was thought to have been laid upon him. The gypsy, accused in witchcraft, was hunted down and burnt at the stake.
Count di Luna loves Leonora, a lady-in-waiting to the Princess of Aragon, but she loves a mysterious troubadour. Meeting accidentally, Count di Luna recognizes him as Manrico, an officer in the army of Prince Urgel and thus the Count’s enemy in the civil war. Both rush off to settle their dispute in combat.
   Gypsy camp. Azucena tells Manrico about the tragic death of her mother and her vengeance. The grief of miserable Azucena, who once made a terrible mistake by throwing her own baby son into the fire, touches Manrico.
   Alarmed Azucena realizes that she has let out her secret and reassures Manrico that he is her son. Manrico grieves about Leonora who, thinking him dead, is about to enter a convent.

Act 2

   Count di Luna together with a group of his soldiers is waiting for Leonora in the yard of the convent to force her to become his wife. However Manrico arrives and upsets this plan.
   A military encampment of the troops of Count di Luna near the castle Castellor. Old Azucena is brought in. Ferrando recognizes her as the gypsy who kidnapped younger brother of Count Di Luna. Enraged Count determines to avenge his brother by having her burnt at the stake.
   Chapel in the castle Castellor. The wedding ceremony of Leonora and Manrico is finished. Manrico receives news that Azucena has been captured by Count di Luna and is sentenced to death. Manrico rushes to save his mother.

Act 3

   The battle with the army of Count di Luna finished with the defeat of the rebels. Manrico and his friends have been captured. Leonora offers herself to the Count in exchange for Manrico’s freedom. The Count agrees, but as the orders for Manrico’s release are being given, Leonora sucks a poison concealed in her ring.
   Prison. Manrico and Azucena are waiting for execution. Leonora persuades Manrico to flee. The poison has already begun to take effect: with her last strength Leonora explains that she has chosen to die as his love than to live as another’s. Count di Luna arrives. Realizing that he has been deceived, he orders to execute Manrico immediately. As the axe falls, Azucena announces that he has killed his own brother.

About show

   «Трубадур» – одна з найяскравіших опер Верді, похмура романтична драма, повна фатальних таємниць і любовних пристрастей. Два брата, трубадур Манріко і Граф ді Луна,  не маючи гадки про свої родинні зв’язки, стають непримиренними суперниками в боротьбі за владу і за любов герцогині Леонори. Одержимий ревнощами і помстою, ді Луна вбиває свого брата, якого розшукував все життя за заповітом покійного батька. Натхненний п’єсою іспанського драматурга А.Г. Гутьєреса, Верді зумів створити надзвичайно яскраві музичні образи героїв. Це циганка Азучена – хранителька таємниці походження Манріко, розривалася між материнською любов’ю і жагою помсти; підступний Граф ді Луна; благородний Манріко і його кохана Леонора. Їх доповнюють колоритні постаті циган, солдат і наближених графа, окреслені в чудових хорах.
