Description "La Forza is the 24th of Verdi's 28 operas, yet in time it's firmly set in the middle of Verdi's career." Lovers separated, believing each other dead, embark on a journey on which destiny leads to a tragedy. Verdi's hauntingly beautiful music is the outstanding feature of this monumental work.
