Making Opera: The Creation of Verdi's La Forza del Destino
This documentary covers the rehearsals, backstage antics, and preparation for the performance of the Giuseppe Verdi opera La Forza Del Destino. Canadian opera director John Copley guides the singers and musicians through the practices with a firm hand and shows humor along with rigid discipline. The viewer sees those involved in the production from backstage as well and from the audience for the final scene of the opera. The documentary was made with funds from the government-sponsored Ontario educational network and the Canadian Broadcasting Company.
