One of the most important operas of Verdi’s mature period returns to the GNO: Don Carlo, based on Friedrich Schiller’s play of the same title, shall be presented in its Italian five-act version (Modena, 1886), directed by the great British director and former artistic director of London’s Royal National Theatre Sir Nicholas Hytner, with sets and costumes by Bob Crowley. A co-production of the Royal Opera House, London, the New York Metropolitan Opera and the Norwegian National Opera (Oslo).

It is a grandiose opera full of impressive arias, duets and compelling ensembles, but at the same time also a work with deeply human characters, who struggle to achieve a balance between their feelings and duty. Its multi-level political dimension, with the conflict between secular power and church, and, at the same time, between liberalism and absolutism, was of particular interest to Verdi, especially at a time when the modern Italian state was being formed.

The performance will be conducted by the celebrated conductor and artist in residence at the GNO for the 2019/20 season Philippe Auguin, starring an internationally acclaimed cast of renowned soloists.
