Making Opera: The Creation of Verdi's La Forza Del Destino Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

La Forza del Destino is an important opera by Giuseppe Verdi which, in this documentary, is being produced by the Canadian Opera company under the direction of John Copley. The documentary's footage of the rehearsal process shows the arduous task of mounting an opera in all its unwieldiness and humor, with Copley as the mover-and-shaker who causes it all to happen. Anyone wanting to understand the process of producing such an elaborate musical presentation, whether they are drama or music students, will want to put this documentary on their "must-see" list. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
