Giuseppe Verdi uses “The Force”!

Classical FX has a great friendship with operas from the pen of Verdi who just happens to be celebrating his bicentennial birthday this year.  We’ve opened every concert with the sparkling “Libiamo” from La Traviata and love to program the quartet from Rigoletto.  This month, you will find 3 FXers onstage at The Kennedy Center’s Opera House in a production of La Forza del Destino or The Force of Destiny.  It is an action packed, modern production with vivid reflections right from the nightly news report.  But most important is the music it showcases.  We especially love the men’s choruses.  Bravo Tim and Joe!!
