Verdi: La Forza del Destino
3/12/1977-Levine; Price, Domingo, MacNeil, Talvela, Elias, Capecchi - Met
Opera Radio on SiriusXM celebrates the 90th birthday of an American
treasure, soprano Leontyne Price, with a special broadcast of La Forza del
Destino recorded in 1977. Born on February 10, 1927, Price thrilled
audiences in a wide range of roles at the Met over a span of nearly 25
years, even starring in the world premiere of Barber’s Antony and Cleopatra
for the opening of the company’s new house at Lincoln Center in 1966. But
the composer whose operas she’s most associated with is Verdi, starring as
five of his heroines during her Met career. She debuted her breathtaking
rendition of La Forza del Destino’s Leonora in the fall of 1967 during the
Met’s second Lincoln Center season, and went on to give 17 more
performances before retiring the role in 1984.

Best regards,

E J Michel
