In November 1924 Volksoper director Fritz Stiedry and Franz Werfel, author of the bestseller Verdi: „A Novel of the Opera“, presented an exciting plan: the scarcely known Verdi opera „La forza del destino“ would be adapted by Werfel and performed at the Volksoper. But the plan fell to pieces.
Almost a century later, the German-language version of „The Force of Destiny“ will be performed at its intended venue.
