I sometimes have thought an interpolated high note from Azucena at the end of the ensemble Act 3, Scene 1, Il Trovatore with the Count, Ferrando, and soldiers:


Ah!
Deh! rallentate, o barbari,
le acerbe mie ritorte.
Questo crudel martirio
è prolungata morte!
D'iniquo genitore
empio figliuol peggiore,
trema! V'è Dio pei miseri
e Dio ti punirà



Not sure what note that would be ... ?!


And Azucena is supposed to have a high c! Many mezzos and contraltos who sang this part would sing an A instead.
