Verdi's Don Carlo Information

David McVicar's monumental production—created for the Met premiere of the original French version of Verdi's gripping drama in the 2021-22 season—returns, now sung in Italian and starring an unbeatable cast of dramatic voices. Russell Thomas, one of today's fastest-rising tenors, takes on the title role, a Spanish nobleman caught between private passion and public duty, sharing the stage with sopranos Eleonora Buratto and Angela Meade as Elisabeth de Valois, mezzo-soprano Anita Rachvelishvili as Princess Eboli, baritone Peter Mattei as Rodrigo, bass-baritone John Relyea as the Grand Inquisitor, and bass Günther Groissböck as King Philip II. Carlo Rizzi conducts one of the repertory's most epic works.

World premiere: Opéra, Paris, 1867 Verdi's longest and most ambitious opera offers a profound look at the intersection of the personal and the political spheres. The opera features a number of complex one-on-one confrontations, and the chorus, when it appears, is imposing, most notably in the central auto-da-fé. The grandeur of the score telescopes in Acts IV and V to the individuals, with magnificent and melodically rich solo scenes.
