overview

In Verdi’s La forza del destino, a stray bullet accidentally kills a young woman’s father, activating an unstoppable chain of fateful misunderstandings, merciless pursuits, and murderous revenge. Next to the work’s heavenly music, it is this depiction of the fury of chance that makes this work one of the most fascinating and challenging in the Verdi canon. This production by Bavarian State Opera, under the thoughtful and visionary direction of  Martin Kušej and features today’s most exciting Verdi interpreters  Jonas Kaufmann and Anja Harteros in the leading roles.

“Verdi is alive and well in Munich”

- Opera News

"If Mr. Kaufmann will not come to the United States, then the United States — or at least its most devoted opera fans — must go to Mr. Kaufmann: He’s worth it"

- The New York Times

"In the great operas of Verdi, Puccini, Strauss and Wagner, Ms. Harteros is as good — as powerful yet lyrical in her singing, as sensitive in her acting — as anyone in the world."
