As West Michigan’s only professional opera company, Opera Grand Rapids thrills audiences with the gripping tale of Verdi’s Il Trovatore. The four-act opera chronicles a gypsy hag’s lifelong revenge plot, fraught with kidnapping, a witch burning, and unregulated derivatives trading. Nationally acclaimed cast members, including seasoned tenor Arnold Rawls, belt out monumental arias and the spellbinding “Anvil Chorus” in elaborate period costumes. Operagoers delve into the dramatic story up close in the orchestra section of the 2,404-seat DeVos Performance Hall, refurbished in 2002 to further enhance the auditorium’s sight lines and glowing amber wood panels.
