Verdi radically revised the score in 1883, using an Italian libretto and reducing the opera from five acts to four. The popularity of Don Carlo has grown unremittingly ever since, with today's critics almost unanimously recognising it as one of Verdi’s greatest masterpieces, an opera that continues to reveal new gems.
Daniel Oren is fully in control on the podium, ensuring unanimity between orchestra and singers. The Maestro softens the dark tones of the score, which are well reflected in the visuals, choosing instead to emphasise the various changes of mood.
