Notes & Reviews:

La Forza del Destino was one of Verdi's more tormented operas in the making, and its first version is quite different from the one we are used to hearing today. In its definitive version, with the changes to Act three, Act four and the finale, it was first performed at Teatro alla Scala on 7th February 1869, and was well received both by audiences and critics. A few people expressed doubts about the mixture of the plot's tragic elements and some characters' comic traits; Verdi always defended this choice, which was almost Shakespearean but had no tradition in Italy.
