Personal sacrifice meets political thriller in this vast opera by a master of the genre. No composer rivals Verdi in his ability to draw the audience into complex political landscapes by telling intimate, personal stories. The opera’s extraordinary musical demands and sprawling story make it a rarity on the opera stage. Subscriptions on sale now at Opera Australia. Performed in Italian with English surtitles.
