Jonas Kaufmannand and Anna Netrebko star in Verdi’s epic La forza del destino (The Force of Destiny) an opera which demands the very best of singers for its powerful music and the fullest theatrical treatment for its story of bitter revenge pursued across miles and years.

The Marquis of Calatrava's daughter Leonora falls in love with Don Alvaro, butwhen her father forbids their marriage, a fatal accident triggers a drama of obsession, vengeance and tragedy

La Forza del Destino is one of Verdi's most ambitious scores, with Christof Loy's colourful and spectacular production reflects the kaleidoscopic nature of Verdi's opera, where intense personal dramas play out against a background of war, and in which religion plays an ambiguous role.

Includes two intervals. Sung in Italian with English subtitles.
