Opera San José continues its 29th season with Giuseppe Verdi's powerful drama, Il trovatore. Set in 15th-century Spain, Verdi's classic has it all: vengeance, war, jealousy, and passion with an emotional, heart-stopping score including one of the most famous choral melodies ever written, the "Anvil Chorus." Il trovatore will be sung in Italian with English supertitles.

Tickets are on sale at the Opera San José Box Office, by phone at (408) 437-4450 or online at www.operasj.org.
