Don Carlo

Opéra Bastille, Paris

25 October – 23 November 2019

A tense, towering drama of love and power, church and state, Giuseppe Verdi’s Italian adaptation of Don Carlo is an opera at its very grandest and most compelling. That this epic political tragedy set in sixteenth-century Spain never feels any less relevant goes without saying, but just look at the cast for this Paris production. Roberto Alagna and Michael Fabiano alternate as Don Carlo. There’s a choice of Aleksandra Kurzak or Nicole Car as Elisabetta and the mighty René Pape plays the tormented King Philip II. Enough said.
