La forza del destino
Giuseppe Verdi’s opera La forza del destino deals with the power of fate. Francesco Maria Piave wrote the libretto for the opera in four acts. In 1862, the opera La forza del destino premiered at the Russian Bolshoi Theater.
After a new version by Antonio Ghislanzoni, the opera was first performed in 1869 at Teatro alla Scala in Milan. The motif of fate runs through the entire opera.
Verdi’s goal was to establish Italian opera in Russia. He succeeded with the opera La forza del destino, which delighted the audience.
The opera was first performed in Italy under the name Don Alvaro, but was not well received by the public due to miscasting. In 1869 Verdi presented the revised opera at La Scala in Milan, where it is still very popular today.
