Verdi the patriot, politician and defender of a free Italy could hardly remain unmoved by Schiller's Don Carlos. At the cost of some historical detail, the German writer breathed a libertarian energy into his subject matter which attracted Verdi straight away.
Courtly intrigue, political plotting, family revolt and amorous rivalries: it is little wonder that Verdi chose this subject to take Paris by storm at the Meyerbeer Grand Opera.
