La Forza del Destino

ROH: La Forza del Destino
Based on Ángel de Saavedra's dramatic play Don Alvaro, La forza del destino is one of Verdi's most ambitious scores, and in which intense personal dramas play out against a background of war, and in which religion plays an ambiguous role. The opera contains some of Verdi’s best 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.
