Die Macht des Schicksals
Or Forza as it's usually known--don't forget it streams on Dec 28. This picture makes me smile. I remember once long ago I was in Vienna and the newspaper said they were doing Die Macht des Schicksals. I puzzled over this for a long time. In those days the opera might have been performed in German.
For more pictures see here.
I was sent a link on my phone for this opera from the BSO--a first--which I can't find now in YT. There was a lot of talking in German. The regisseur compared Schicksal to Murphy's Law. You know: if it can go wrong, it will. This is sort of the programmer's motto.
I find that it is Forza that I love.
