Anna Netrebko and Yusif Eyvazov take the leading roles in Franco Zeffirelli's lavish production of Il trovatore – Verdi's fiery tale of troubadours, gypsies and jealousies – from the Arena di Verona, filmed in 2019. With an imposing set featuring groups of giant armoured knights, a fortress turning into a luminous cathedral, an enormous choir, horses and breathtaking fights, the production was described as "perhaps [Zefirelli's] best arena production" by Opernglas. It also brought Netrebko to Verona for the first time, and alongside her and Eyvazov, in the title role, the cast features further superb singers, including baritone Luca Salsi as the Conte di Luna and Metropolitan Opera star Dolora Zajick as the fortune-telling gypsy Azucena.
