Iconic Productions: Don Carlo

Don Carlo is one of the noblest and most beautiful operas of Giuseppe Verdi…an epic work which constantly shifts from full-scale grand opera scenes to astonishingly intimate moments.” – General Director Plácido Domingo on Don Carlo

LA Opera’s 2006/2007 was one for the record books with four company premieres, five new productions, and the arrival of Music Director James Conlon.

Don Carlo was one of those exciting new productions, performed under Maestro Conlon’s expert baton. Famed theater and opera director Ian Judge staged Don Carlo, Verdi’s opera which revolves around the life of Prince Carlos, whose betrothed is instead married to his father, Phillip II of Spain, as part of the peace treaty ending the Italian War of 1551-1559.
