Sample text

It is a masterpiece of lyric theater that is a tribute to the art form, as well as to the genius of Giuseppe Verdi.

And respecting French opera traditions, Don Carlos included the inevitable ballet, so the resulting French version of Don Carlos was pure spectacle, true to the prevalent French Meyerbeerian traditions of grand opera. Although the French premiere was a success, Verdi was unhappy and uncomfortable with the final opera. Immediately, he sought to make a number of changes and modifications to both the dramatic action and the music score. Arrigo Boito, the renowned poet who would eventually collaborate with Verdi on Otello and Falstaff, provided revisions to Don Carlos; in 1869 the opera premiered in Italian as Don Carlo, the version that ultimately satisfied the composer, and the version that is most often heard today.

The trusted Posa also becomes Carlo’s messenger, the man who will arrange a private meeting between Carlo and the Queen, the encounter in which the Queen promises Carlo that she will plead with the King to heed his petition to be named governor of Flanders. And when the impetuous Carlo draws his sword against the King, it becomes Posa, Carlo’s trusted friend who accepts his surrender, in effect, his invitation to imprisonment. Verdi hated history’s oppressors, and believed more profoundly in consolation for history’s oppressed.
