About

Set in 16th-century France and Spain, Don Carlos tells of the political and amorous rivalry between King Philip II and his son, Don Carlos, over Elisabeth de Valois.

Boasting an international cast in one of Verdi’s most popular operas, Luc Bondy’s moving production is the original French version restored to five acts.

Recorded live at the Théâtre du Châtelet, Paris, in March 1996 and re-mastered in high-definition from the original master tape.

“…it offers insights into Verdi’s grand opera drama which no other production I have seen has begun to match…Pappano conducts the Orchestre de Paris with thrilling éclat…” - Sunday Times
