La forza del destino


La forza del destino

Royal Opera House, London
Until 22 April 2019

Verdi’s great blood-and-thunder thriller is one of the staples of the bel canto repertoire. In the right hands, this family saga of destiny, love and implacable vengeance can also be a deeply cathartic operatic experience. All the ingredients certainly look right for this revival of Christof Loy’s perceptive and thought-provoking production, and conductor Antonio Pappano is unsurpassed in Verdi. But let’s face it, the combined star power of tenor Jonas Kaufmann and soprano Anna Netrebko is probably all the recommendation you’ll need.
