In the wake of Rigoletto, Verdi’s one aspiration was to do something new. Yet despite his eagerness, the project of adapting the Spanish playwright Antonio Garcia Gutiérrez’s El Trovado, a play with a rocambolesque plot set in medieval Spain and featuring troubadours along with a gypsy’s curse, inspired his librettist, Salvatore Cammarano, with only mild enthusiasm. However, Verdi succeeded in transcending this story of love and death through the vertiginous beauty of his music: since its first performance in 1853, this particularly inspired work has become one of the mainstays of the repertoire. Thanks to the clarity of his staging, set amid the noise and fury of a fratricidal war, Àlex Ollé makes night, castles, soldiers, pyres and eternal hatred instantly believable.
