Don CarloThis grand opera was cut and re-cut for over 20 years after its Paris debut in 1867 but Don Carlo - returning to the Royal Opera House in Nicholas Hytner's production - still remains Verdi's longest work. It gives new meaning to the word epic, taking in a broad sweep of 16th-century history and playing out the usual collection of operatic storylines involving lost love, jealous revenge and political ambition. Tickets are on sale now for Don Carlo at the Royal Opera House. The main action is focussed on Don Carlo falling for Elisabetta di Valois (she loves him back too), who has to marry Don Carlo's father King Philip II as part of the peace treaty between Spain and France. Nicholas Hytner's wealth of experience across all three genres of theatre, opera and film promises a dramatic frisson not usually associated with this monumental work. Stylised sets and period costumes from Bob Crowley complete the picture.

 

About Royal Opera House

This impressive building in the heart of Covent Garden has been playing host to major stars of the classical music world since 1858. The third theatre to be located on this site, today's Royal Opera House is the result of a reconstruction in the 1990s (although the main auditorium is part of the original building).
