Longing only for love, a brave young woman sacrifices her own happiness in a desperate attempt to save her father's life. Hailed as Verdi's breakthrough opera for its masterful depiction of intimate emotions, this swift-moving tragedy explores the forbidden passion between a peasant girl and a nobleman, and the plotting of two ruthless men determined to tear them apart. Starring two of opera's brightest and fastest-rising international stars: Leah Crocetto and Michael Fabiano. Music Director Nicola Luisotti conducts.
