Moshinsky’s Australian stage production is stronger than his Covent Garden staging of 2002 (Opus Arte, conductor Carlo Rizzi), though José Cura catches more of Manrico’s 19th-century Romantic neurosis than many a rival. Of the remaining DVDs (to date a disappointing selection), the Met Opera’s production conducted by Marco Armiliato provides (through Charles Edwards’s revolving set) the best solution to keeping this show, with its frequent changes of scene, on the move in our age of weighty 21st-century scenery.
