While Verdi’s longest and most ambitious opera has been a mainstay on the Met stage for much of the last century, it wasn’t until the company’s 2021–22 season that Don Carlos was presented in its original French. To commemorate the auspicious occasion, the Met mounted a new production by director David McVicar, with audience favorite Matthew Polenzani making his role debut as the title prince. Alongside the star tenor, this performance from the Live in HD series also features soprano Sonya Yoncheva as Carlos’s forbidden love, Élisabeth de Valois, mezzo-soprano Jamie Barton as the Princess of Eboli, and baritone Etienne Dupuis as Rodrigue, Carlos’s most loyal companion. Rounding out the principal cast, bass-baritone Eric Owens is King Philippe II, and bass-baritone John Relyea is the Grand Inquisitor. Patrick Furrer takes the podium to lead the mighty forces of the Met Orchestra and Chorus.
Cast: Sonya Yoncheva, Jamie Barton, Matthew Polenzani, Etienne Dupuis, Eric Owens, and John Relyea
