Gregory Kunde, the winner of “Best Male Opera Singer” at the renowned International Opera Awards of London, will again perform in the David Bösch production of Il trovatore, which premiered at ROH-Covent Garden in the 2015/2016 season. The American tenor, whose performance was very warmly received on that occasion, is to sing the role of Manrico again. This time Il trovatore will be on the stage of the London theatre between January 26th and February 9th.
