The Royal Opera – La Forza del Destino, Verdi

Friday April 12th, 3pm
Wednesday April 17th 7pm

Christof Loy’s popular productions are first and foremost imprinted with what the music conveys. The remarkable appropriateness between the scores and the spatial installation of this striking melodrama makes this show as brilliant as its performers, Anna Netrebko and Jonas Kaufmann.

Leonora falls in love with Don Alvaro, but when her father forbids their marriage, a fatal accident triggers a drama of obsession, vengeance and tragedy. Jonas Kaufmann 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 production comes to The Royal Opera in a sensational staging from Amsterdam packed with colour and action. It is directed by Christof Loy and conducted by Antonio Pappano, Music director of The Royal Opera.
