Giuseppe Verdi’s Don Carlo

Verdi’s longest and most ambitious opera is a powerful epic of love and politics set in France and Spain at the height of the Inquisition. The score combines intimate solos and ensembles with grand choral scenes, most notably the monumental auto-da-fé that ends Act III. Following its 1867 premiere in Paris (sung in French as Don Carlos), the composer revised the opera several times over a period of almost 20 years. Nicholas Hytner’s Met production, first seen in 2010, presents Don Carlo in its original five acts, sung in Italian.
