Don Carlo

A Free Live Music Performance from LA’s Metropolitan Opera

Sunday, February 8, 2015

It is often said that Don Carlo is Giuseppe Verdi’s most ambitious masterpiece.  This emotion-filled opera about love and politics in 16th Century Spain is also one of his most profound operas.   This opera premiered in Paris in 1867 and was reworked several times to Verdi’s specifications.  La Traviata, Otello and Aida may be more well-known, but Don Carlo is the opera lover’s dream opera. 

Please join us and see the Los Angeles Metropolitan Opera sing excerpts from Don Carlo this Sunday, February, 8th, from 3 -4 pm at the Central Library in the Mark Taper Auditorium. This event is free and open to all ages.
