“Il Trovatore” kurz und bündig: neue Folge der ZDFkultur-Reihe “Oper für Ungeduldige” mit Moritz Eggert

Eine Zigeunerin hat angeblich den Bruder eines Grafen verzaubert und wird dafür hingerichtet. Ihre Tochter entführt den Bruder des Grafen, um ihn aus Rache zu ermorden, bringt aber aus Versehen ihren eigenen Sohn um. Mit diesen Verstrickungen ist man mittendrin in Verdis Oper “Il Trovatore”. Moritz Eggert fasst sie in der neuen Folge von “Oper für Ungeduldige” zusammen, die ab Mittwoch, 10. Juli 2019, unter zdfkultur.de abrufbar ist. Er entlarvt den vermeintlich so tragischen Stoff als Feuerwerk der Komik und bringt den “Troubadour” in nur zweieinhalb Minuten auf den Punkt.

“Il Trovatore” in a nutshell: new episode of the ZDF cultural series “Opera for the impatient” with Moritz Eggert
