Starring Placido Domingo and Ramon Vargas
Two veritable operatic icons grace the stage for LA Opera's stunning production of Verdi's grandest of grand operas. Making his first appearance with the company for the first time almost two decades, Ramon Vargas steps into the shoes of the heartbroken Don Carlo, whilst powerhouse Placido Domingo will captivate audiences as his best friend and confidant Rodrigue.
Extravagant and richly layered, Don Carlo is a treasure of the repertoire with its thrilling tapestry of forbidden love, political intrigue, sacrifice and religious persecution against the tumult of the war between Spain and France. First playing in 1867 at the Paris Opera, it is one of the most adapted and enjoyed of Verdi's work and a spectacular treat for all types of opera-goer.
