An excellent cast for the opening season of Festival Verdi 2016 –
Teatro Regio di Parma.
First performed in French at the Paris Opera in 1867, Don Carlo
is in many ways an amazingly innovative work. The opera seems
to underline Verdi’s shift from the Manichean division between
good and evil, which had been a clear, structural element of his
dramaturgy up to that point in his career. In this opera, Verdi
assembles all his mainstay music theatre themes: power, with its
honours and burdens; the contrasts of impossible love; the conflict
between father and son; and an oppressed people demanding
Verdi radically revised the score in 1883, using an Italian libretto
and reducing the opera from five acts to four. The popularity of
Don Carlo has grown unremittingly ever since, with today's critics
almost unanimously recognising it as one of Verdi’s greatest
masterpieces, an opera that continues to reveal new gems.
Daniel Oren is fully in control on the podium, ensuring unanimity
between orchestra and singers. The Maestro softens the dark
tones of the score, which are well reflected in the visuals, choosing
instead to emphasise the various changes of mood.
