A total of sixteen lovers of opera graced the halls of the Opera House this month for the viewing of
Benjamin Britten’s English opera “Albert Herring”, a nostalgic journey to a bygone England
of yesteryear. Next month Tuesday 16th April, a completely different 5 act opera set in France and
Spain in 1560, Guiseppe Verdi’s “Don Carlo” or Prince Charles of Spain. Recorded live at La Scala
in 1992 with marvellous stage production by Franco Zeffirelli with a cast comprising Luciano
Pavarotti as Don Carlo, Samuel Ramey as his father King Phillip II of Spain, Daniela Dessi as
Elisabetta di Valois (who is in love with Don Carlo and he with her). But King Phillip has been
promised Elisabetta’s hand and heart by a treaty signed by the King of France. Does the reader see
where the storyline is going! To make matters worse, Princess Eboli is also in love with Don
Carlo! This is one of those operas that leave one glued to the seat. Composed by Verdi in 1867 after Schiller’s drama of 1787, it’s history in the making.
