Summary
Acts 4, 5' is part of a series of films from Electric Sky. An Opus Arte / Royal Opera House co-production. Fifty years after the Royal Opera staging directed by Visconti and conducted by Giulini placed Don Carlos firmly into the performing cannon of great operas comes a major new production, using Verdi's Italian version of 1886. Nicholas Hytner - known for his theatre direction with the National Theatre and for such films as The Madness of King George as well as for opera - directs, while acclaimed international stage designer Bob Crowley contributes spacious and stylized sets alongside period costumes. Antonio Pappano conducts in the Italian repertory for which he repeatedly shows such flair and sympathy, while the stunning international cast includes Rolando Villazon, Ferruccio Furlanetto, Simon Keenlyside and fast-rising star Marina Poplavskaya. With Sonia Ganassi and Eric Halfvarson also in the cast, this will truly be a rare occasion of music and drama to savour. Verdi's grand opera interpretation of Schiller's play takes in the sweep of 16th-century history, political ambition and personal emotions. This opera is set in France and Spain in the second half of the 16th century. At the beginning, a peace treaty between the two countries is to be sealed by the marriage of the Princess Elizabeth of Valois, daughter of Henry II, and Don Carlos, son of Philip II and heir to the Spanish throne. King Philip II of Spain realizes that his new wife Elisabetta does not love him but instead has fallen for his libertarian son, Don Carlo. With the threatened vengeance of the spurned Princess Eboli and the conflict between the ideals of Rodrigo and the Grand Inquisitor in the battle for the King's influence, this is a drama of power and psychology on an epic scale
