The 2019 Live Cinema Series continues at Gesa Power House Theatre with a screening of the current Royal Opera House production of La forza del destino on Sunday, April 28 at 1:00 p.m. This production is filmed live in London and rebroadcast internationally to select screens.
Leonora falls in love with Don Alvaro, but when her father forbids their marriage, a fatal accident triggers a drama of obsession, vengeance and tragedy. Jonas Kaufmann and Anna Netrebko star in Verdi’s epic La forza del destino (The Force of Destiny) an opera which demands the very best of singers for its powerful music and the fullest theatrical treatment for its story of bitter revenge pursued across miles and years.
This production comes to The Royal Opera in a sensational staging from Amsterdam packed with color and action. It is directed by Christof Loy and conducted by Antonio Pappano, Music Director of The Royal Opera.
Filmed during a live event, the Live Cinema Series broadcasts offer audiences an equivalent to the best seat in the house, with incredibly detailed close-ups of the performers.
This screening runs approximately 4 hours 15 minutes including an onscreen introduction and two intermissions. La forza del destino is performed in Italian with English surtitles.
Beer, wine, popcorn, and snacks will be available for purchase, and may be taken into the theater. No outside food or beverages allowed.
