|Verdi's La Forza del Destino at Opera Holland Park|
|La Forza del Destino isn't performed nearly as often as Verdi's most popular works: this year's production at Opera Holland Park is the first time it's been staged in the UK for several years. This is odd, because musically, it's a strong contender for being Verdi's greatest work of all, at least in terms of its melodies and the way they are developed and woven into the story: this opera has more melodies that stay with you as you leave the opera house than any except perhaps Rigoletto.|
