About Verdi's Don Carlo

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.

Ambitious, Slow, Great staging, Great acting, Great singing

See it if you must see all of Verdi's operas-this one has a good story, and you enjoy great singing by a large cast and chorus with monumental staging

Don’t see it if you are impatient - it is a long opera with two 30 minute intermissions and it moves slowly with many lines sung multiple times.

Epic, Riveting, Great staging, Great singing

See it if you enjoyed previous McVicar productions for the Met: this one is equally stunning, and the entire ensemble rocks.

Don’t see it if you can't sit down for four hours, not even through Verdi.

Riveting, Great staging, Great singing, Absorbing

See it if a world-class production of a masterpiece appeals.

Don’t see it if you hate opera, or prefer your entertainments done in under 2 hours (this one is a glorious 4.5 hours, including 2 half-hour intermissions).
