Don Carlo

Fotogallerie für Don Carlo      - Insgesamt 5 Fotos.

The king (his own father) covets the love of his life, keeping him away from both his love and the throne, while his only friend betrays and abandons him. Thrown in such ways out of his journey through life, Don Carlo does not give up on himself despite all his desolation. He finds new courage to love and act. Although this seals his demise, hope remains at the side of people such as Don Carlo. When Verdi composed the piece based upon Friedrich Schiller’s drama of the same name, his own rational view of it showed no real opportunity for an Italy that had been freed from foreign rule – and yet his ideals were not silenced.
