The Queen of the Night aria from Mozart's "Magic Flute" sung by Albina Shagimuratova at the Teatro alla Scala di Milano


Soprano Diana Damrau sings 'Der Hölle Rache', the famous Queen of the Night aria from Mozart's The Magic Flute, with Dorothea Röschmann as Pamina.

Pace, pace mio Dio

Anna Netrebko as Leonora sings 'Pace, pace mio Dio' aria in Christof Loy's production of Verdi's sweepingly ambitious opera on war, religion, love and fate.

La forza del destino is one of Verdi's most ambitious scores. Its overture - which introduces us to the sinister motif signifying Fate - is one of his most memorable. The opera also contains some of Verdi’s most brilliant choral writing, including Act III’s stirring ‘Rataplan’ chorus, and several beautiful and intimate arias such as Leonora's ardent Act IV 'Pace, pace mio Dio!'. There's comedy too with the scenes for the greedy monk Fra Melitone. Christof Loy's colourful and spectacular production reflects the kaleidoscopic nature of Verdi's opera, where intense personal dramas play out against a background of war, and in which religion plays an ambiguous role.

Verdi and his librettist and friend Francesco Maria Piave based La forza del destino on Ángel de Saavedra's highly dramatic play Don Alvaro, o la fuerzo del sino, and also incorporated material from Schiller's Wallenstein's Camp for Act III's military scenes. Following Forza's 1862 St Petersburg premiere, Verdi made extensive revisions to the score. The most substantial of these were a new overture, and a less melodramatic ending, in which Don Alvaro remained alive rather than committing suicide. The revised Forza, the version best known today, had its premiere on 27 February 1869 at La Scala, Milan.

Rompo i Lacci

Anthony Roth Costanzo - Handel: Flavio, HWV 16 - Rompo i Lacci


Tilda Swinton is up to her beautifully bizarre tricks in a new music video she co-directed with partner Sandro Kopp. The six-minute video arrives just ahead of the release of Swinton’s new movie, Luca Guadagnino’s “Suspiria,” and is set to an aria by countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo, with composition by George Frideric Handel. In it, Swinton’s Springer Spaniels are featured performing tricks and running through the wilderness in slow motion.
