The Salzburg Festival hosts a new production of Verdi's Don Carlo, directed by Peter Stein and embodied by Jonas Kaufmann! In the second half of the 16th century, a peace treaty between France and Spain is to be sealed by the marriage of the Princess Elizabeth of Valois, daughter of Henry II, and Don Carlos, son of Philipp II and heir of the Spanish throne. When Don Carlos (Jonas Kaufmann) and her future spouse meet for the first time, they fall in love on sight, although they both were apprehensive over their marriage to a stranger. But their happiness does not last long, because the peace treaty arrangements have been altered: Henry II now intends to marry his daughter to King Philip himself. To ensure peace between France and Spain, Elizabeth consents, and lets Carlos devastated. As ever in Verdi's masterpieces, Don Carlo's story takes its roots in the political and religious situation of Europe. Just like in a Racinian tragedy, the lovers' path is determined by a political situation which overwhelms them. This dream cast gathers one of the most sought-after tenors of the moment, Jonas Kaufmann, and the best Verdian singers on the operatic scene
