Verdi’s grand tale of ill-fated love, deadly vendetta and family strife - soprano sensation Lise Davidsen headlines as Leonora, who flees home after being forced to abandon the man she loves.
Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts Verdi’s grand tale of ill-fated love, deadly vendetta, and family strife, with stellar soprano Lise Davidsen following a string of recent Met triumphs with her role debut as the noble Leonora, one of the repertory’s most tormented—and thrilling—heroines.
Director Mariusz Treliński delivers the company’s first new Forza in nearly 30 years, setting the scene in a contemporary world and making extensive use of the Met’s turntable to represent the unstoppable advance of destiny that drives the opera’s chain of calamitous events.
The distinguished cast also features tenor Brian Jagde as Leonora’s forbidden beloved Don Alvaro, baritone Igor Golovatenko as her vengeful brother Don Carlo, mezzo-soprano Judit Kutasi as the fortune teller Preziosilla, bass-baritone Patrick Carfizzi as Fra Melitone, and bass Soloman Howard as both Leonora’s father and Padre Guardiano.
A co-production of the Metropolitan Opera and Teatr Wielki–Polish National Opera.
La Forza Del Destino is sung in Italian with English subtitles.
A screening of the broadcast from the Metropolitan Opera 2023-24 Season in New York.
