"A magnificent tale of passion and power set against the chilling backdrop of the bloody and ruthless Spanish Inquisition."

Don Carlos faces the most profound of dilemmas. In a cruel twist of fate, his former fiancé and the love of his life, Elizabeth, has recently become his stepmother. His father and usurper is the tyrannical Philip II.

The heartbroken Carlos turns for help to his closest friend, Rodrigo, Marquis of Posa, a champion of the oppressed, who questions the monarch’s iron rule and becomes an unlikely power broker in the duplicitous court.

Written just two years before the French Revolution, Schiller’s Don Carlos is a man caught at the intersection of passion and politics: smitten with his stepmother and seduced by Posa’s dangerous vision of freedom.

Director Gadi Roll (The House of Bernarda Alba, Don Juan Comes Back From The War) brings his trademark dynamic imagery and haunting soundscapes to Schiller’s masterpiece. 

Full of Shakespearean echoes, this is a double edged story of loyalty, love and friendship, and the abuses of power and statesmanship.  Don Carlos is as resonant today as ever.
