Four-act Italian version
Teatro Regio’s 2013 revival of their highly successful 2006 production of Verdi’s Don Carlo celebrates the 40th Anniversary of the theatre’s reopening in 1973. With traditional staging and lavish costume design, the production garnered high acclaim in the national and international press, with GB opera commending the ‘sumptious’ setting and French online music magazine ResMusica praising director Hugo de Ana’s decision to revive the show ‘in all its splendour’. Shown here in the four-act version, Don Carlo is the fascinating tale of father-son power struggles, adultery and love that borders on incest. The cast – under the powerful baton of Gianandrea Noseda – is headed by renowned Mexican tenor Ramon Vargas, and also features Ludovic Tezier, who has been hailed as ‘one of the best Verdian singers of our time’ (ResMusica).
Epic version of Verdi’s late masterpiece staged on a huge scale in Hugo de Ana’s monumental production.
Staged to mark the 40th anniversary of the rebuilding of the Teatro Regio.
