“La Forza Del Destino” is one of Verdi’s most ambitious scores. Its overture – which introduces us to the sinister motif signifying fate – is one of his most memorable. The opera also contains some of Verdi’s most brilliant choral writing, including Act III’s stirring Rataplan chorus, and several beautiful and intimate arias. 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. Antonio Pappano conducts the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House, who accompany an all-star cast, lead by Anna Netrebko and Jonas Kaufmann.
