Somehow omitted from my Spectator interview with Jonas…

it’s Forza del Destino.


  • Sue says:

    Well Cutie Jonas, I would love to come and look at that handsome face and hear that wonderful voice but I live on the other side of the world. Sigh.

  • erich says:

    Available on a Munich DVD – hideous sets, unfortunately…

    • Yes Addison says:

      Well, it isn’t “pretty,” but it does have real, meaningful direction, and that cast delivers the intent with a wallop. Even Kowaljow is roused to something like life. It’s a good show.

      Anyway, nice to know that Kaufmann is, at least, scheduled to sing this at Covent Garden. I see Christof Loy is penciled in for the production. He hasn’t exactly been an ROH audience favorite, although I liked the stripped-down Lulu a lot.

  • Patricia says:

    It is the production Loy did in Amsterdam earlier this season. I saw it and liked some but not all of his ideas

  • Rowena Shepard says:

    I’m most excited about the Kaufmann/Tézier reunion. Their chemistry was off the charts in the Munich Forza. As long as the director allows them to do their thing, we’re in for some good messy Foe Yay.
