Lyric drama in four acts | Text by François Joseph Pierre Méry and Camille Du Locle after Friedrich Schiller’s drama Don Karlos, Infant von Spanien, 1884 version | In Italian with German supertitles

In this, his bleakest opera, Verdi creates a ­claustrophobic world in which love and emotion are ­doomed to succumb to religious fanaticism and an ­uncompromising hierarchy. Based on ­Schiller’s drama of the same name, in this production, stage ­director ­Jakob Peters-Messer creates a pressure-­laden, ­Kafkaesque labyrinth that leads to inevitable ­catastrophe. Love’s final destination can only be death.
