Opera Rara Rouleau/Turp/BBC Co/Matheson 4 CD
Original 1867 five-act French version.

Joseph Rouleau, André Turp, Robert Savoie, Edith Tremblay & Michelle Vilma

BBC Singers & BBC Concert Orchestra, John Matheson

It could be argued that Don Carlos is Verdi’s finest opera. What is undeniable is that Don Carlos is Verdi’s longest, noblest and most complex work. It is his grandest ‘Grand Opera’ with a plot intermingling public and private scenes and confrontations, the conflicts of parenthood and love, and as if that were not enough, the power struggle between church and state.

'This set is utterly necessary in any collection'
--Robert Levine,
