SUMMER OPERA SERIES

Il Trovatore

Salzburg Festival

Get Tickets Here

Spain is torn apart by civil war. The commander of the Royalist Aragon troops, Count di Luna, is obsessed with Leonora, a young noblewoman in the queen’s service, who does not return his love.

Outside the royal residence his soldiers keep watch at night. An unknown troubadour has been heard serenading Leonora and the jealous count is determined to capture and punish him.

To keep his troops awake, the captain, Ferrando, recounts the terrible story of a Gypsy woman who was burned at the stake years ago for bewitching the count’s infant brother. The Gypsy’s daughter then took revenge by kidnapping the boy and—so the story goes—throwing him into the flames where her mother had died. The charred skeleton of a baby was discovered there and di Luna’s father died of grief soon after.

No trace was ever found of the Gypsy’s daughter, but di Luna, always hoping that the remains might not have been his brother’s, has sworn to find her.

During a party at the Duke’s palace in Mantua, the Duke brags of his romantic conquests. He surveys his court to choose a woman with whom to pass the night and selects the Countess Ceprano.

Rigoletto, the hunchbacked court jester, mocks her cuckolded husband. Marullo reveals that Rigoletto has a secret lover whom he goes to see each night. Together with the Count of Ceprano, they decide to kidnap the woman. The Count of Monterone enters, demanding justice for the honor of his daughter, who was seduced by the Duke.

Rigoletto insults him, and Monterone curses the Duke and Rigoletto. Rigoletto is very troubled by the curse, and fears for the safety of his daughter, whom he has kept carefully hidden from the courtiers.
