Verdi: La forza del destino DVD (Bavarian State Opera)

Rounding off the Verdi centennial year in dramatic style – Martin Kušej’s thrilling contemporary interpretation of Verdi’s late-period opera proved the perfect vehicle for the Bavarian State Opera’s ‘dream team’ of Jonas Kaufmann and Anja Harteros. The imposing sets’ references to terrorism and the implosion of modern civilization bring the opera’s inherent drama to a breathtaking pinnacle. ‘Opera could never have been better or more grand’ – Die Welt; ‘His singing is dashing, heroic, melting and easy’ – Financial Times.
