Despite a storyline that can, and has, confounded listeners and critics alike, La Forza del Destino, Verdi’s first opera following a multi-year hiatus, is also amongst his most compelling due to the unmitigated force of its telling and the sheer beauty of the score. This 1960 live performance from Argentina’s famed Teatro Colon features the wonderful Dutch soprano Gré Brouwenstijn as Donna Leonora, Aldo Protti, and American stars Richard Tucker and Mignon Dunn. For vocal connoisseurs, this is a must own. 24bit/96kHz re-mastered.
