DON CARLO at the New National Theatre in Tokyo


Music by Giuseppe VERDI
Opera in 4 acts
Sung in Italian with Japanese surtitles
Opera Palace
27 Nov. – 9 Dec., 2014

This is a masterwork from VERDI’s mature period. At the centre of this massive historic drama is the grief of a prince, whose sweetheart becomes his father’s bride. Confrontations in politics, religion and in the relationship between father and son, love and jealousy, friendship, as well as complicated intertwinement, between the characters are all expressed in the stately, dignified music. The staging by Marco Arturo MARELLI comprises a space surrounded by prison-like walls and a symbolic cross. It was first presented in 2006 and is here being re-presented 8 years later.
