Don Carlo

Don Carlo: Jonas Kaufmann, Anja Harteros Don Carlo: Jonas Kaufmann, René Pape Don Carlo: Anja Harteros, René Pape
Giuseppe Verdi
Joseph Méry and Camille du Locle
Italian translation by Achille de Lauzières and Angelo Zanardini

Spain in 1560: life on the brink of the abyss. A land ruled by church and state! Will the mighty – the grand inquisitor and the king – succeed in killing love? Will they manage to extinguish the blazing flame of liberty? Verdi's darkest opera causes us to tremble, but the composer’s musical genius does it in a fascinating and deeply moving way.

Five act version Italian with German surtitles
