Verdi's masterful opera is performed here at St.Petersburg's Mariinsky Theatre, where it premiered in 1862. Staged in its original version, this LA FORZA DEL DESTINO is very special indeed, and gets suitably magnificent performances out of stars Galina Gorchakova and Nikolai Putilin. Valery Gergiev conducts.
Description by Kultur Films:
Based on a play by Sardou, the opera ranges from tender love scenes to murderous rage. Starring Eva Marton.
