A ROH Insights event exploring Verdi's Il trovatore was live-streamed for free via the Royal Opera House YouTube channel and this page at 7.15pm BST 15 June 2016.

Prior to opening night, director David Bösch discussed his new production of Verdi's great Romantic opera, alongside conductor Gianandrea Noseda.

The event also featured performances from cast members Željko Lučić and Marina Prudenskaya, while former ROH Writer-in-Residence Sarah Hibberd provided a historical overview of the work.

Il trovatore had its premiere in 1853 – hot on the heels of Rigoletto – and soon became one of Verdi’s most popular operas. Bösch's new staging will focus on the conflict between the fragile world of the gypsies and the brutal military world of Count di Luna.

    I went to the first night and much enjoyed both the performance and the production. It was interesting to hear the comments of both the conductor and the director, neither of whom I was familiar with. I like this opera a lot anyway.
