Father against Son. Catholic against Protestant. Friend against Friend. Such a grand web of emotion, history, and musical thinking is contained in Verdi’s epic Don Carlo that the experience of it will leave you riveted.
If you’re longing for thrilling music combined with searing drama, then nobody does it better than Verdi. The terrors of the Spanish Inquisition are raging, and so are personal and political passions.
France’s Princess Elizabeth is forced to marry Phillip, King of Spain, forsaking her beloved Don Carlo---the firebrand who turns out to be her husband’s own son! Add to the mix the terrifying Grand Inquisitor and the King’s duplicitous mistress, and the stage is set for an explosive amalgam of sex, politics, and religion. With the orchestra, chorus, and international cast on stage, projections of masterworks by Goya, El Greco, and more provide the backdrop for an unforgettable experience.
