Verdi: La Forza del Destino / Jonas Kaufmann, Anja Harteros, Ludovic Tézier, Nadia Krasteva, Vitalij Kowaljow. Bavarian State Opera, Asher Fisch (contemporary view of the revised 1869 vers.) [Blu-ray]

Notes & Reviews:

Filmed in Munich at the Bavarian State Opera. Conducted by Asher Fisch.

Rounding off the Verdi centennial year in dramatic style - Martin Kusej's thrilling contemporary interpretation of Verdi's late-period opera, La Forza Del Destino, proved the perfect vehicle for the Bavarian State Opera's "dream-team" of Jonas Kaufmann and Anja Harteros. The imposing sets' references to terrorism and the implosion of modern civilization bring the opera's inherent drama to a breathtaking pinnacle.

The Daily Telegraph
The world's greatest tenor.

The Times
Munich has done Verdi proud here - Kaufmann and Harteros are both on top form.

Financial Times
Kaufmann's singing is dashing, heroic, melting and easy.

Die Welt
Opera could never have been better or more grand.
