In a 19th century final concert, opera rubs shoulders with tone poems from Bavaria. Verdi’s heroine in La Forze del Destino, forced to choose between her father and lover, suffers a tragic fate, foreshadowed in the dramatic overture by the use of the destiny theme. Richard Strauss’ Don Juan and Till Eulenspiegel in turn graphically portray well known rakishness and a prankster’s merry exploits. To complement the Verdi, the bass-baritone arias are in keeping with the drama of this programme.
