Details on the Performance

Verdi himself classified his FORZA DEL DESTINO, which premiered in 1862, as the first "modern" opera that consisted of ideas instead of individual numbers. In fact the entire work draws its driving force from the polarity between two opposing worlds of feeling that possess the main characters to the point of obsession: on one side the alleged guilt for the death of Leonora's father, which hangs over her and her lover Alvaro. On the other side the lust for vengeance that drives Leonora's brother Carlo to chase them to the ends of the earth. An unconditional chase unfolds over three hours, leading the three lead characters through a world that is constantly derailing. In desolate crowd scenes we experience a disinhibited society in which pure survival matters above all else, and where violence has replaced any sense of morality. Even the church authority in whose arms Leonora and Alvaro seek refuge proves to be flawed and is the "Master of Fate", inferior to the power of evil. 

War and religion are the poles that determine the lives of people in Verdi's LA FORZA DEL DESTINO. In the production by Frank Castorf, this idea of the play is made visible by its location in the Spanish Civil War and in Naples during the Second World War. Castorf uses, among other things, excerpts from the novels "La pelle" and "Kaputt" by the Italian Curzio Malaparte, who in a surrealistic aggravation depicts the horrors of war, but also an indestructible belief in life.

The Venue's History in few words …

Contrary to the Staatsoper Unter den Linden which was founded in the eighteenth century in the centre of town and for a long time considered the Royal Opera, the history of the Berlin Opera began in 1912, in the Charlottenburg neighborhood situated outside the city limits, and intitiated by the rich bourgeoisie. But the inevitable occured, following the economic crisis of World War I, and the Charlottenburg Opera was ultimately purchased by the City of Berlin.

Bruno Walter greatly improved the musical qualities of this institution which was rebaptized the Städtische Oper (City Opera). Prior to that, Carl Ebert, as administrator (with Rudolf Bing, the future legendary director of the MET in New York, as assistant), promoted more modern music, including those operas by Kurt Weill or Schreker which Klemperer could no longer perform at the then-closed Kr oll-Oper, and which provoked the ire of the Nazis as early as 1933. In 1945, the building was left in ruins, but by the month of August 45, the company presented FIDELIO at the « Theater des Westerns » and animated that theatre until 1961. During this period, the conductor Ferenc Fricsay, named music director, enabled the Städtische Oper to regain its international ranking, alternating standard repertoire in top-quality productions (where voices such as Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau or Josef Greindl were discovered), works by Stravinsky and Hindemith (who were banned by the Nazis), and world premieres. But in 1955, the Opera Unter den Linden, situated in East Germany, reopened under the name of the Deutsche Staatsoper. Under the influence of this politico-artistic competition, three decisions were made : the Städtische Oper was rebaptized the Deutsche Oper Berlin, plans were made to construct a theatre at the Charlottenburg site (situated in West Berlin), and Carl Ebert who, in the mean­time founded the Glyndebourne Festival, was called back. His productions and season programmes turned West Berlin into one of contemporary opera's main capitals.
