Hello, and welcome to Just Answer.

There are several classical pieces included in the movie's soundtrack, and a compilation of the movie's music is played during the trailer. You can view the soundtrack listings below, and I've identified the classical pieces:

Hi again,

This is what I have found for you: The music is by Antonio Vivaldi; the piece from his masterpiece 'The Four Seasons', is the third movement (Presto) of "Summer", evoking feelings of a 'storm'. You can hear it, here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N00XKtROddc&feature=related

It is my guess that HBO added the opera voices to intensify the effect, OVER the music, but the music running through the trailer (and movie) that you are trying to identify, is by Vivaldi.
