Don Carlo (Jonas Kaufmann), the Spanish crown prince, and Elizabeth of Valois (Malin Byström), daughter of the King of France, fall in love, only to be torn apart when Carlo’s father, King Philip II (Ildar Abdrazakov), decides to marry Elizabeth himself. Eve-Maud Hubeaux is the beautiful princess Eboli, Elizabeth’s rival, and Igor Golovatenko is magnetic as Carlo’s best friend Rodrigo. Roberto Scandiuzzi rounds out the cast in the small but crucial role of the sinister Grand Inquisitor.
Bertrand de Billy conducts the Vienna State Opera orchestra and chorus.
