DON CARLO

Opera in five acts

Composer Giuseppe Verdi. Text by Camille du Locle after the Italian five act version of 1886 and 1867.
In Italian with German and English surtitles.

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.
