From October 10 to November 11, 2017, the prestigious Opera Bastille Paris is presenting the outstanding opera, Don Carlos, by the prolific Italian composer Giuseppe Verdi.
Based on « Don Carlos, Infant von Spanien », the famous dramatic play by the German playwright Friedrich Schiller, this five-act opera’s libretto was actually written in French by the two famous librettists, Joseph Méry and Camille du Locle. It depicts the dilemma of Carlos, Prince of Asturias (1545–1568), who, though he was betrothed to Elisabeth of Valois, the eldest daughter of King Henry II of France, for political reasons, she married his father King Philip II of Spain instead.
This performance of « Don Carlos » is conducted by Philippe Jordan the Musical Director of the Opera National de Paris and directed by the renowned director Krzysztof Warlikowski.
