Action one:
Tragic events took place many years ago in the gloomy castle of the Counts of di Luna. The old count had two sons. One day a gypsy appeared at the junior's bedside. From that time on, the boy began to wither: the witch put damage on him. She was seized and burned, but the daughter of the gypsy took revenge on the count: she stole the baby, and no one else saw him. The old count did not live long. He took an oath from his eldest son that he would look for his missing brother. All this tells Ferrando to the soldiers gathered in the castle. At midnight, the spirit of a burnt witch wanders around the castle. Leonora is waiting for the troubadour Manrico. She tells Ines about the first meeting with her lover at a knightly tournament. Count di Luna appears, but the troubadour's song makes him stop. Leonora hurries to Manrico. A quarrel breaks out between the rivals.
Second Action:

Gypsy camp in the Vizcaya mountains. The old gypsy Azucena is gloomy. Left alone with Manrico, she tells how her mother was burned. Having stolen a son from the count, she decided to throw him into the same fire, but, mad with grief, she made a mistake and threw her own child into the fire. Manrico is amazed - so he is not Azucena's son? The gypsy woman calms him down by talking about her love. Let Manrico avenge her and not spare the Count di Luna. Ruitz informs Manrico that Leonora received false news of his death and decided to take a haircut as a nun. Leonora tenderly says goodbye to Ines. Together with the nuns, she goes to the altar. Suddenly, they are blocked by Count di Luna and his entourage: instead of the monastery, Leonora will go down the aisle with him. Manrico's appearance amazes everyone. The count is angry - his enemy has risen from the dead. Leonora cannot believe the happy deliverance. Ryuits arriving in time with the warriors forces the Count's entourage to retreat.
Act Three:
Count di Luna's camp. The Count's soldiers are preparing for the siege of the castle, in which Leonora and Manrico took refuge. The soldiers bring in a bound Azucena - she was captured as a spy. Ferrando recognizes her as a gypsy who once kidnapped a child. Desperate, Azucena calls out to Manrico. The count's evil joy is endless: he will not only avenge his brother, but also execute the mother of his enemy. The long-awaited moment of the marriage of Leonora and Manrico is overshadowed by anxiety: the castle is surrounded by enemies. Ruitz reports that Azucena fell into the hands of Count di Luna. Manrico is determined to save his mother.
Action Four:
The prison tower in the castle of the Count di Luna. In a heroic struggle, Manrico's squad is defeated; the troubadour languishes in captivity. Leonora is ready to save her beloved at any cost, she has a reliable protector - a ring with poison. Leonora desperately begs the count to release the troubadour, but her request only increases her anger. There remains a last resort: she vows to become the wife of the count. While the count gives the order to the prison guards, Leonora drinks poison. In a dark dungeon, Azucena and Manrico await death. Enter Leonora. Manrico reproaches his beloved: he does not need freedom, bought at such a price. Only when the poison begins to take effect, Manrico learns of Leonora's heroic self-sacrifice. The count who enters is convinced of the futility of his hopes. He orders the execution of Manrico. The awakened Azucena in horror stops the count, but too late - the execution has taken place. Then the gypsy opens the terrible truth to the count: he killed his own brother. Now her mother is avenged.
