Synopsis

Christof Loy directs a star-studded cast of singers, including Anna Netrebko, Jonas Kaufmann and Ludovic Tezier, in Verdi's epic opera, conducted by Antonio Pappano.


Music: Giuseppe Verdi Director: Christof Loy Conductor: Antonio Pappano


Donna Leonora: Anna Netrebko Don Alvaro: Jonas Kaufmann Don Carlo di Vargas: Ludovic Tezier


Leonora falls in love with Don Alvaro, but when her father forbids her 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. This 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.
