Based on Victor Hugo’s revolutionary play, Ernani involves three men--two noble, and one a bandit--who attempt to out-maneuver one another for the hand of the beautiful Elvira.

Four extraordinary singers star in Verdi’s Ernani, a Great Performances at the Met presentation, airing Sunday, June 17, 2012 at 12 p.m. on WXXI-TV/HD (DT21.1/cable 1011 and 11). Marco Armiliato conducts Verdi’s thrilling drama of passion, power, and honor, which is seen in Pier Luigi Samaritani’s lavish production.
