The incomparable Leontyne Price stars as Leonora in Verdi's La forza del destino. This John Dexter production was premiered in 1975 and filmed in 1984. The incomparable Leontyne Price delivered a series of unforgettable performances as Leonora, imprinting the role with the uniqueness of her voice and her superlative acting. She is joined by famed Verdi baritone Leo Nucci and other fine artists in the supporting cast. James Levine's conducting was hailed by The New York Times for being 'full of drive and fire' with 'the grandeur of the magnificent score coming through'. La Forza del Destino had its world premiere in 1862 and was Verdi's strongest statement on the inexorability of fate. This Met performance is based on the 1869 version of Forza, which includes Verdi's entirely new ending for the opera.
