Father against Son. Catholic against Protestant. Friend against Friend.
If you’re longing for thrilling music combined with searing drama, then nobody does it better than Verdi. The terrors of the Spanish Inquisition are raging, and so are personal and political passions. France’s princess Elizabeth is forced to marry Philip, King of Spain, forsaking her beloved Don Carlo—the firebrand who turns out to be her husband’s own son! Add to the mix the terrifying Grand Inquisitor and the King’s duplicitous mistress, and the stage is set for an explosive amalgam of sex, politics, and religion. Projections by Spanish masters Goya and Berruguete provide the mesmerizing backdrop for our internationally-celebrated cast. Maestro Emmanuel Villaume conducts The Dallas Opera Orchestra and Chorus for this remarkable musical and theatrical event!
