‘Love is only known by him who hopelessly persists in love’
A magnificent tale of passion and power set against the chilling backdrop of the bloody and ruthless Spanish Inquisition.
Written just two years before the French Revolution, Schiller’s Don Carlos is a man caught at the intersection of passion and politics: smitten by his stepmother and seduced by Posa’s dangerous vision of freedom. The chilling work is full of Shakespearean echoes and its themes of justice and equality; freedom of expression and conscience; religious bigotry and state persecution are as relevant today as ever.
Director Gadi Roll brings his trademark dynamic imagery and haunting sound-scapes to Schiller’s masterpiece. Cancellation Policy
