Grand opera epic with top-class singer ensemble
Spain, mid-16th century. A regime of surveillance rules with the cruel and torturous Inquisition. The royal household becomes the scene of political intrigue and private passions surrounding the heir to the throne, Carlos. He is dangerously in love with his stepmother, Queen Elizabeth, which leads to conflict with his father, King Philip II. Giuseppe Verdi’s opera based on Schiller’s tragedy of the same title is a gripping political drama and a precise family portrait. Director Vincent Huguet stages this work together with stage design legend Richard Peduzzi. The musical director is the young conductor Michele Spotti.
