MEMO Arts Centre, Barry, will screen a live performance from the Royal Opera.

On Tuesday, January 31, the Royal Opera will perform Il Trovatore.

International stars Dmitri Hvorostovsky, Anita Rachvelishvili, Lianna Haroutounian and Gregory Kunde lead a cast of world-class singers in this Verdi classic.

Il Trovatore is one of the great operas of the Romantic period, a story of passion and blood, love and vengeance, disaster and murder.

New in the 2015/16 season, this staging by director David Bösch puts the story of passion against the backdrop of war. Fire and snow in the landscape echo the cruelty and love of the story: soldiers and gypsies clash, a mother reveals a terrible secret and two men are engaged in a deadly fight for one woman.

The Anvil Chorus is just one of the highlights of Verdi’s music.

Tickets cost £15 or £12.50 for concessions.
