Musée d'Orsay: Don Carlos

Don Carlos

Subject to the sanitary measures in force for the opening of our facilities to the public

After the Sicilian Vespers in 1855, the Paris Opera turned to Verdi who, in spite of his reticence towards the "grande boutique" as he called it, finally accepted a commission for an opera inspired by Schiller. Don Carlos had a long gestation with many different versions including the one in French - the most complete - that we are presenting.
