Watch an extraordinary cast perform Giuseppe Verdi's Don Carlos as the new historical production by Polish theater director Krzysztof Warlikowski. Jonas Kaufmann stars as Don Carlos (from the 10 until the 28 October) and Ludovic Tézier sings as Rodrigue, while Elīna Garanča and Ekaterina Gubanova share the role of Princess Eboli.
Verdi’s grand five-act opera Don Carlos is a work that defies all boundaries. Created in French by the Italian composer, this masterpiece tells a story of politics, religion, and history based on conflicts in the life of Carlos, Prince of Asturias, in the 16th century. Commissioned by the Paris Opera and premiered in Paris in March 1867, Don Carlos is Verdi's longest opera. Krzysztof Warlikowski and conductor Philippe Jordan offer to the audience the chance to witness a historical version of the opera, the one modified by Verdi himself for the work’s first performance.
