Description
The definitive version of this tragic opera was first performed at Teatro alla Scala on February 7, 1869, and was acclaimed by both audiences and critics. Some questioned the plot's mixture of tragic elements and a few characters' comic traits, but Verdi defended this Shakespearean approach. His complex choral writing for Forza was also quite extraordinary. Taped live in Modena in January of 2006, Susanna Branchini (Leonora), Renzo Zulian (Don Alvaro), and Marco Di Felice (Don Carlos) sing the main roles. The libretto is included.

"A fresh and purposeful reading of the marvelously sprawling score … led by Lukas Karitynos with a great deal of vigor and subtlety, tempi always judiciously chosen…. Heroine Leonora is taken with appreciable artistry by Susanna Branchini, culminating in a nicely shaped and felt 'Pace, pace'."—Gramophone

"Baritone Marco Di Felice is very fine as Carlo; the voice is attractive and a good size…. Bass Paolo Battaglia's Guardiano is well sung and characterized…. Paolo Rumetz's Melitone is funny and not mugged; Tiziana Carraro slurs Preziosilla's runs but otherwise is impressive…. The chorus and orchestra are frequently very fine."—Classics Today
