In few words:

When the curtain rises, Don Alvaro is about to flee with Leonora. Alas, the two lovers are caught in the act by Leonora’s father. Alvaro throws his pistols to the ground but one of them goes off and kills the father. The force of destiny is pitiless and laughs at the fates of men. A grand fresco abounding in dramatic twists, La Forza del destino is also a work deeply rooted in its own time. In 1861, Verdi agreed to stand for parliament to pursue his political ideals. However, the Risorgimento was floundering and the composer fell prey to doubt. His dark melancholy suffuses “La Forza”. The opera becomes a place where dreams are shattered against the wall of reality but where a fragile song of hope of enrapturing beauty is to be heard.
