Director Michael Mayer's hit production of Verdi's powerful tragedy sees 1500s Mantua replaced by a seedy and gaudy Las Vegas in 1960; the ideal setting for this eternal conflict of depravity and innocence. As with many operas, the themes of revenge, mistaken identities and divine intervention feature heavily in this; something that was quite hidden in Victor Hugo's original novel until Verdi put it to music.
