Grand opera epic with a top-class ensemble of singers
Spain, mid 16th century. A surveillance state reigns with the cruelties of the Inquisition. The royal house becomes the scene of political intrigues and private entanglements surrounding the heir to the throne, Carlos. The latter lays claim to his stepmother Queen Elizabeth and thus comes into conflict with his father, King Philip II. Giuseppe Verdi's opera, based on Schiller's novel of the same name, is a gripping political drama and a precise family portrait. Director Vincent Huguet stages this work together with stage design legend Richard Peduzzi. The young conductor Michele Spotti is in charge of the musical direction.
