Amintore Galli Theater: Don Carlo by Giuseppe Verdi

Opera Season 2023 of the Galli Theater

Friday 24 November and Sunday 26 November 2023

Don Carlo arrives in Rimini, one of the most demanding titles in Verdi's catalog both for the richness of the score and for the sumptuousness required for the staging of an opera inspired by the tragedy that Friedrich Schiller wrote inspired by historical events that occurred in Spain in the mid Five hundred.
The clash between an oppressive political system and the aspiration for individual freedom such as the contrast between father and son, attracted Verdi to compose a large-scale work presented for the first time in 1867 in Paris.
The vocal cast is composed by the bass Ramaz Chikviladze (Philip II, King of Spain), the tenor Matteo Lippi (Don Carlo, Infante of Spain), the soprano Maria Teresa Leva (Elizabeth of Valois), the baritone Hae Kang ( Rodrigo, Marquis of Posa) The mezzo-soprano Shay Bloch (The Princess Eboli) and the bass Strahinja Djokic (The Grand Inquisitor).
On the podium of the Emilia Romagna Arturo Toscanini Orchestra and the Modena Opera Choir the Maestro Jordi Bernàcer.
The direction is signed by Joseph Franconi Lee with the sets and costumes designed by Alessandro Ciammarughi who wanted to be inspired by the historic show created at the Teatro dell'Opera in Rome by the great Luchino Visconti.
The staging of Don Carlo comes from a co-production involving the Teatro Comunale of Modena, the Theater of Piacenza, the Theaters of Reggio Emilia and the Galli Theater of Rimini.
