Leonora falls in love with Don Alvaro, but when her father forbids their 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. The production comes to The Royal Opera in a sensational staging from Amsterdam packed with colour and action.
