As part of the celebrations of the bicentenary of Verdi’s birth, Peterborough Opera presents one of the favourites of the opera canon, Il Trovatore at Stamford Corn Exchange tomorrow (Wednesday) to Friday, at 7.30pm.

The question at the heart of Il Trovatore centres on how rivals in love can become brothers in arms.

It’s a tale of love and revenge that is mysterious, brutal and deeply human.

With a cast that includes Cambridge tenor Oli Perkins, Rutland-based soprano Caroline Trutz and mezzo-soprano Liz Williams, this will be a night to remember for seasoned opera lovers, while also providing the perfect occasion for newcomers to experience some truly magnificent performances within an awe inspiring production.

Il Trovatore will be sung in English and conducted by Marc Murray, the music director of Peterborough Opera.

Tickets are £12 from the box office 01780 766455 or by visiting
