“I want to be a close as possible to Verdi and Schiller”: thus the director Giancarlo del Monaco presents his Don Carlo, a staging rich in period costume, fearsome inquisitors and huge crucifixes. 


Zubin Mehta is at the helm of the Orchestra and Choir of Maggio Musicale Fiorentino for Verdi’s grand-opéra which is inspired by the leyenda negra, the "black legend" on the reign of Philip II, el Rey prudente.
