Verdi’s “Forza” Takes to the Screen on Saturday
Thursday, March 7, 2024


Guiseppe Verdi’s tale of ill-fated love, deadly vendettas and family strifes will hit the silver screen on Saturday when the Metropolitan Opera’s presents a live simulcast of “La Forza del Destino.”

The presentation will start at 10:55 a.m. Saturday, March 9, at the Magic Lantern Cinemas in Ketchum. Tickets are available at the door—cash only.

An Italian opera, “Forza” is based on a Spanish drama and made its debut in Saint Petersburg, Russia, in 1862. Translated “the power of fate,” or “The force of destiny,” this is the company’s first new “Forza” in 30 years.

Mariusz Trelinski’s new production brings the opera into the present as it stars Norwegian soprano Lise Davidsen playing the noble Leonora, one of the repertory’s most tormented—and thrilling—heroines.

Tenor Brian Jagde plays Leonora’s forbidden beloved Don Alvaro. Baritone Igor Golovatenko plays her vengeful brother Don Carlo. Mezzo-soprano Judit Kutasi sings the role of the fortune teller Preziosilla. Bass-baritone Patric Carfizzi is Fra Melitone and bass Soloman Howard, Leonora’s father and Padre Guardiano.

Nadine Sierra will provide exclusive behind-the-scenes access, conducting interviews with the cast and creatives during intermissions.
