La forza del Destino

La forza del DestinoT1028108063
Don Alvaro and the beautiful Leonora plan to elope, but when her father is killed by a stray bullet from Alvaro's gun, it triggers an inescapable chain of events. Forced to flee as they are pursued by her brother, who has sworn vengeance, the characters are thrown together and torn apart in a series of coincidental meetings. The other-worldly presence throughout, of the carefree Preziosilla, provides a constant reminder that the force of destiny really is unstoppable.
Music Verdi
Lyrics Francesco Maria Piave
