Don Carlos (2012)

Giuseppe Verdi

A monumental drama in sombre tones

When father and son love the same woman, tragedy ensues. Add to the mix Rodrigo, a nobleman willing to die for liberty; Elisabet, yearning for love; and the intimidating Grand Inquisitor. The result is a powerful drama that unfolds in a series of enthralling arias and duets. Don Carlos is Verdi at his finest, a veritable feast of voices.

Set in late Medieval Spain, this monumental drama of love, politics and power is being staged in a new, monumental production. There are fine moments in store as two magnificent bass voices clash in a Gothic landscape. Don Carlos is a co-production with Czech National Opera.

Premiere is on the 19th of October 2012.
