In 1992, Vargas made an amazing international debut when the Metropolitan Opera invited the tenor to replace Luciano Pavarotti in the opera “Lucia de Lammermoor”. Ramón Vargas continued the great singer’s success. In 1993 he made his debut at La Scala as Fenton in the new staging of “Falstaff” performed by Giorgio Strehler and Riccardo Muti.

The opera “Troubadour” gained fame, recognition and love thanks to it melodic richness. It was the music of this opera, full of passion, anger, anguish, and sometimes the most gentle and sublime lyrics that won her immense popularity.

The director's decision will help the audience to empathize with the heroes and fully immerse themselves in the story. This is a typical romantic drama with tangled intrigue and bloody denouement, with fights, revenge, poison and fatal secrets.

The plot fascinated the composer so much that he wrote the music for “Troubadour” in 29 days.

It will be the first experience of staging an opera in Russia for a dramatic director Igor Lysov. Before he staged operas in Salzburg (“The Magic Flute”) and Warsaw (“The Polish Epos”).
