About

In few words:

By virtue of its language, Don Carlo, the Italian adaptation of Don Carlos, a grand opera in the French style, is more passionate than the original version. However, from one version to the other none of the finesse is lost, be it in the score or the dramatic intrigue which, from the Escorial to Flanders, interweaves political, romantic and family conflicts. An historical fresco to which Krzysztof Warlikowski confers the depth of a huis clos in which the human psyche is laid bare, revealing the paralysis of men faced with the legacy of power.

Media coverage

  • Pour sa prise de rôle, Aleksandra Kurzak a réussi à cerner la complexité d'une femme qui renonce à l'amour par devoir et fait montre d'une impressionnante maturité. Aigus lumineux, médium épanoui, phrasés riches en nuances et demi-teintes, la soprano polonaise convainc sans faillir.

  • La princesse Eboli, dame d’honneur d’Elisabeth et éprise de Don Carlo, trouve en Anita Rachvelishvili une interprète hors-norme
