LA Opera Don Carlo

"Plácido Domingo is ageless as ever. The greatest opera star of our time, and surely the most beloved... a triumph." - Mark Swed, Los Angeles Times

With rich orchestrations, thundering choruses and an endless flow of rapturous melodies, one of Verdi’s grandest and greatest works is an enthralling tale of morality and mortality. After losing his fiancée to his father, the king of Spain, the broken-hearted Don Carlo realigns his sympathies and turns against the Spanish Inquisition, knowing full well that his vow to fight for liberty might ultimately cost him his life. As Don Carlo, superstar Ramón Vargas returns to Los Angeles for the first time in nearly two decades, with Plácido Domingo as his heroic best friend.

*October 11th at 7:30pm: Post-performance signing event with Plácido Domingo and James Conlon.  For more information click here.
