Director: Christof Loy

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

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 such as Leonora’s ardent Act IV ‘Pace, pace mio Dio!’. There’s comedy too with the scenes for the greedy monk Fra Melitone. 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.
