19:00 Don Carlo
Opera in four acts by Giuseppe Verdi. 205 min (with one interval) Libretto by François-Joseph Méry and Camille du Locle. Original Italian translation by Achille De Lauzières, revised by Angelo Zanardini. "Milan" version 1884. Conductors: Robert Treviño, Giacomo Sagripanti. Stage Director: Adrian Noble. Sung in Italian. Politics and religion are dangerously entwined in Giuseppe Verdiís Don Carlo. It is based on the 1787 dramatic poem by Friedrich Schiller and was first performed at the Paris Opéra in 1867. Verdi made extensive revisions to the opera over the following 20 years. This production by Nicholas Hytner follows the five-act 1886 version Ė Verdiís final revision of the work. Don Carlo contains a host of vividly drawn characters, depicted through some of Verdiís most complex music. The chilling Grand Inquisitor imposes his will in thunderous, dark-toned music, while the revolutionary Marquis of Posa sings a stirring duet with Don Carlos in praise of friendship and freedom. And in Eboli and Elizabeth, Verdi created two of his most sympathetic heroines.
