Travel Tips for Bregenz
Troubabour Act 1 Scene 1
In the first scene of the opera, Count Luna's military commander Ferrando tries to keep his troops awake through the night by telling them about the awful things that happened here in the castle fifteen years earlier. A gypsy women was accused of witchcraft and burned at the stake. Her daughter, Azucena, took revenge by stealing a baby and throwing it into the flames.
This is a dark and spooky piece of music, to set the tone for the rest of the opera. Ferrando keeps hesitating at dramatic points in the story, and the chorus comes in urging him to continue.
As I explained on my Bregenz intro page, I was not doing anything illegal by taking these photographs. All they said was no flash and no videos, and I complied with that. And I did not use any fancy equipment, just a small and unobtrusive Canon PowerShot A70 camera.
Azucena immediately takes it all back, say of course you're my son, I was only hallucinating. And goes on to tell, in a fantastic piece of music, how she found him near death on the battlefield and nursed him back to life.
Just then Manrico learns that Leonora thinks he is dead and in despair is about to take vows as a nun. He immediately rallies his men and runs off to prevent this, despite Azucena's pleas to wait until his battle wounds are healed.
The poison takes hold too quickly. Leonora dies too soon. Luna realizes he has been betrayed and executes Manrico.
This is Azucena's moment. Egli era tuo fratello she tells him. He was your own brother.
