In the history of opéra, the city of Venice occupies an eminent position. In 1637, here in the doges city, the first public opéra theater was opened to paying members of the public. This was a turning point, breaking with the tradition of court performances, and the opéra house in Venice soon attracted a new audience, presenting works that blatantly alternated scènes ofhigh comedy and high tragedy, butfocusing more importantly on the "prima donna" and soon the "primo uomo". Le. the castrato. A number of theaters subsequently appeared in Venice and in the seventeenth century, the works ofHândel and Alessandro Scarlatti were public triumphs.

 

In 1787, "La Nobile Società", the owner of a theater that had recently been expropriated, decided to build a new hall designed to please both the eye and the ear. The élégant building, with two main entrances, one on the canal and the other on a piazza, underwent various changes over the years, particularly after the fire in 1836, but, like the Phoenix whose name it bears, it rose from the ashes.


On the night of 29 January 1996, for the second time in its history, fire devastated the theatre. The interior was completely destroyed and only the foundations survived. The theatre is totally reconstructed “the way it was, where it was” and re-open for a week of inauguration on 14 December 2003. The Return of the great La Fenice theatre is officaly in November 2004 with La Traviata, the opera by Verdi which premiered in this exact theatre.

 

Agreement is universal as to the future of the historié theater which is not only acclaimed as one of the most handsome in Italy, but also holds a long and brilliant record for premiering new works. From Rossini with TANCREDI in 1813 to Luigi Nono with INTOLLERANZA in 1960, ail the great Italian composers have seen their finest works presented here. Verdi premiered five of his opéras to Venetian audiences at La Fenice — ERNANI, ATTILA, RIGOLETTO, LA TRAVIATA and SIMON BOCCANEGRA, and ever since the Italian premières of RIENZI and the RING CYCLE by Wagner, La Fenice hasfeatured many international premières, including three major 20th century opéras: Stravinsky's RAKE'S PROGRESS (1951), Britten's TURN OF THE SCREW (1954) and Prokoflev's THE FIERY AN GEL (1955).

Synopsis

Il Trovatore

IL TROVATORE: A DRAMA OF WAR, LOVE AND FATE
Verdi's Il Trovatore, performed worldwide, tells the tale of Manrique, who - disguised as the 'troubadour' of the title - serenades Leonore, a beautiful noblewoman at his enemy's court. Though his song wins her heart, it fires the jealousy of the Count De Luna. Manrique and De Luna are rivals in love and leaders of opposing armies, but their fates are strangely linked by a mystery from years before...
Il Trovatore combined war, romance, revenge and revelation to create a huge hit and an enduring favourite - millions hearing it for the first time will recognise the famous Anvil Chorus.

HISTORY

Act 1
From Fernand, De Luna's captain of guards, we learn how Manrique's mother, Azucena, lost her mother by the cruelty of De Luna's father and avenged herself by abducting and killing one of the count's two sons, only his charred bones being found.
Leonora admits her love to her confidante, while De Luna stalks in search of his rival. Mistaking De Luna for the troubadour, Leonore rushes to him, only for Manrique to appear, and she is powerless to prevent a duel between the enemies.

Act 2
Manrique has spared De Luna's life, only to be defeated on the battlefield, left for dead, and rescued by Azucena.
Azucena remains haunted by her duty to avenge her mother. She confesses that, in her confusion, the child she killed was not the count's son, but her own. Who, then, is Manrique? A messenger arrives and reports that Leonore, believing Manrique is dead, intends to renounce the world and enter a convent.
Manrique rushes away to stop her.

Act 3
De Luna's army besiege the fortress where Manrique and Leonore have hidden. Azucena, who has been captured nearby, is recognised as the murderer of De Luna's brother. When Azucena cries out to Manrique, De Luna orders his men to burn Azucena in sight of her son. Manrique prepares to launch a desperate attack to rescue her.

Act 4
Verdi provides a harrowing ending. Leonore dies after Manrique refuses to have his freedom bought by her marriage to De Luna. As Manrique is led away and executed, Azucena reveals the terrible truth: De Luna has killed his own brother.
