Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
"The cast is a dream team" wrote the Financial Times after the premiere of this production of Verdi's La forza del destino at the Wiener Staatsoper. Topping the list is Nina Stemme, who gives a full-blooded portrayal of Leonora. Passionate forceful readings are also provided by Salvatore Licitra as Alvaro and Carlos Alvarez as Don Carlo. Zubin Mehta leads Staatsoper Orchestra with agility, subtleness and relaxed mastery, and right from the start David Poutney establishes an atmosphere of entrapment by fate. With the aid of a bizarre, unforgettable stage construction, the acclaimed director finds an ideal setting to illustrate the merciless powers of chance and destiny.

"The cast is a dream team" Financial Times

[...]"Zubin Mehta conducts with easy-going mastery, letting the score breathe and live. The Staatsoper Orchestra plays with ... conviction. [...] The cast is a dream team, headed by Nina Stemme as Leonora..." Financial
