Marcello Giordani will close the current calendar year as Manrico in Verdi’s “Il Trovatore” in a new production of the Teatro Lirico of Cagliari. On the stage of the Lirico he will be joined by a renowned cast, including baritone Roberto Frontali as the Conte di Luna, soprano Daniela Schillaci as Leonora, and Enkelejda Shkoza as Azucena. He made his debut as Manrico in 2005 at the Houston Opera and his first appearance in the role was received with enormous enthusiasm by the critics. “Tackling his first ever Manrico, Marcello Giordani performed with plenty of oomph….” He sang the role at the Met for the first time in February 2016.
