About

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.

“Munich has done Verdi proud here (…) Kaufmann and Harteros are both on top form.” - The Times

“Opera could never have been better or more grand.” - Die Welt

“His singing is dashing, heroic, melting and easy.” - Financial Times

Staged by Martin Kušej

Reviews

Martin Kušej's 2013 Bayerische Staatsoper production plays out in a broadly contemporary setting. Cleanly conducted by Asher Fisch, with superb strings and brass, and oustandingly beautiful work from the Bavarian State Orchestra's uncredited principal clarinet, the performance boast an impeccably balanced quartet of leads ... Thomas Grimm's video direction captures every nuance.  Anna Picard
BBC Music Magazine August 2016
Sony Classical's DVD captures the Bavarian State Opera's 2014 production of La forza del destino live with Anja Harteros and Jonas Kaufmann. Harteros, who rarely sings outside Germany, is ravishing as the ill-fated Leonora and well partnered by Kaufmann's anguished, heroic Don Alvaro. The rest of the cast offer solid aupport.  Richard Fairman
