The first show of the new season in "Helikon Opera" and along with that the last premiere of the previous one is «Il Trovatore» by G.Verdi.
If there is a perfect opera in the world, the victory in the nomination definitely goes to "Il Trovatore", with its intricate plot, emotional intensity and brilliant music. To all of that "Helikon" added the ultra-modern stage equipment, high-tech lighting effects, a gripping detective story, a passionate love affair and an unexpected denouement – and here it is, the performance which has become a hit of the opera.
The image of the sinister "grill", which roasts people’s fates, permeates the entire show. It is very realistic and therefore breathtaking. And next to that horrible grill, in the stylized ruins of Palmyra, there is the illusion theatre, where actors experience dramatical suffering, emotions and love.
According to the Stage Director, "Theatre used to be a mirror of life and its reflection. Nowadays theatre has become our world, where you can find harmony, while real life seems to be an illusion, a nightmare."

Responsible for the music part is Spanish Maestro Óliver Díaz, invited to Russia specially for this perfomance. The choice of the conductor was an absolute fortune for the theatre: its "Il Trovatore" is full of life, colour and energy, with Italian passion in every sound. "One of the most important words in the Italian drama is "vendetta". And I think it is present in "Il Trovatore"," said Oliver Diaz.
