Serious opera in Klosterneuburg Abbey

"La Forza del Destino", or "The Power of Fate", is not exactly a happy opera. The family constellation a la Verdi is bloody, but still ensures full audience ranks today - also at the premiere in Klosterneuburg Abbey.

Verdi's power of fate in Klosterneuburg



Final spurt for the opera preparations The cast cast by Artistic Director Michael Garschall is also partly already well known in Klosterneuburg. Chamber singer Walter Fink can be seen as Donna Leonora's father, Marchese de Calatrava. The pair of lovers, afflicted by his curse and fate, is sung by Karina Flores (Donna Leonora) and Zurab Zurabishvili (Don Álvaro) - the latter being hailed as Canio / Pagliacci (2016) and Hoffmann / Hoffmanns Erzählungen (2019) in Klosterneuburg.
