Opera in 4 acts

Music by Giuseppe Verdi (1813-1901)

Libretto by Francesco Maria Piave, from Ángel de Saavedra, Duke of Rivas, and Friedrich Schiller

Creation at St Petersburg’s Mariinski Theatre on 10 November 1862 and at Milan’s Teatro alla Scala on 27 February 1869

 

Composed on a commission by St Petersburg’s Imperial Theatre, La Forza del Destino was a public success, though critics found it too long. Verdi reworked it for the Scala, producing the final version in 1869, which proved a triumphal and definitive success. Beautiful melodies, powerful and moving choruses, with guaranteed melodrama, this powerful and magnificent work is the epitome of Verdi – the opera is back at the Chorégies and will no doubt prove an uplifting event under the inspired baton of Nicola Luisotti.
