Teatro Regio’s 2013 revival of their highly successful 2006 production of Verdi’s Don Carlo celebrates the 40th anniversary of the theatre’s 1973 reopening.

Shown here in the four-act version, Don Carlo is the fascinating tale of father-son power struggles, adultery and love that borders on incest.

The cast under the powerful baton of Gianandrea Noseda is headed by renowned Mexican tenor, Ramón Vargas and also features Ludovic Tézier, who has been hailed as “one of the best Verdian singers of our time”.

 – ResMusica

With traditional, yet inventive staging and lavish costume design, the production garnered high acclaim in the national and international press.
 

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.
