Description

Don Carlos (3 CD)
ARTIST: Antonio Pappano
Label: PRX/Warner Classics/Parlophone
Release Date: 05/04/18

Don Carlos, one of Verdi’s supreme achievements, received its premiere in Paris and this live recording from the city’s Théâtre du Châtelet presents the original, five-act version of the opera. Singing eloquently in their native French, Robert Alagna and José van Dam head a charismatic cast, while Antonio Pappano, in the words of Gramophone, leads “an inspiriting performance of Verdi’s singular music-drama depicting private tragedy within public conflict … a subtly shaped, superbly paced and vital interpretation from start to finish.”

 

History

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.
