Listen to Verdi’s Don Carlo, Live at The Met

Tonight at 7:00 p.m. you can listen to The Metropolitan Opera’s opening night production of Verdi’s opera Don Carlo, sung in Italian.

“I think Don Carlo is the quintessential Verdi opera…Not one of these characters is prepared to accept his or her own tragic destiny,” director Nicholas Hytner says of Verdi’s epic tragedy in which romantic desire shapes the course of nations.
