Il trovatore

Giuseppe Verdi

Saturday, February 15th, 2003, and I'm driving in the car channel surfing between the three local college radio stations and I get sucked into this opera on 91.5, the classical music station. Monday, I call the station to find out what CD they were playing only to be told it was a live feed from The Met in NYC. Frustrated that I can't purchase the first opera I've ever liked, I go online and discover some people who swap recordings of live opera broadcasts and I snag a copy on MP3. The More Info link is a backgrounder on the opera — feel free to contact me with a recommended recorded version I can link to on Amazon. Image is of the Metropolitan Opera house in New York City.
