DON CARLOS

Yannick Nézet-Séguin leads an all-star cast in this original five-act, French-language version of Verdi’s milestone

 

For the first time in company history, the Met presents the original five-act French version of Verdi’s epic opera of doomed love among royalty, set against the backdrop of the Spanish Inquisition. Yannick Nézet-Séguin leads a world-beating cast of opera’s leading lights, including tenor Matthew Polenzani in the title role, soprano Sonya Yoncheva as Élisabeth de Valois, and mezzo-soprano Jamie Barton as Eboli. Bass-baritones Eric Owens and John Relyea are Philippe II and the Grand Inquisitor, and baritone Étienne Dupuis rounds out the all-star principal cast as Rodrigue. Verdi’s masterpiece receives a monumental new staging by David McVicar that marks his 11th Met production, placing him among the most prolific and popular directors in recent Met memory.

 

“A spectacularly realized vision of Verdi’s sprawling masterwork” - The Washington Post

 

“A milestone for the company ... A triumphant turn in the title role by Matthew Polenzani ... He rises, stylishly, to fiery intensity.” - The New York Times
