The director, who from 2018 to 2021 directed and designed, together with Gio Forma, the staging of four consecutive inaugurations of the Teatro alla Scala, now returns to collaborate with the Comunale after Idomeneo in 2010 and Il Turco in Italia in 2017.

In the creative team alongside him there is Carlo Sciaccaluga, who resumes directing Il Trovatore in Bologna, Giò Forma who takes care of the scenes, D-Wok the videos, Anna Verde the costumes and Antonio Castro the lights.

Famous page of the “Popular Trilogy”, composed after Rigoletto and before La Traviata, the lyric drama in four parts and eight scenes based on El trovador by Antonio García-Gutiérrez, with a libretto by Salvadore Cammarano, was performed at the Apollo Theater in Rome on January 19, 1853 enjoying enormous success. Each character in Il Trovatore tells a story, which mixes nobles and outcasts, superstition and violence, touching on the dark sides of feelings.
