It was only during the Verdi renaissance in the 1920s that Don Carlo, based on Schiller's play of the same name, gained the popularity with audiences that many other works by Verdi already enjoyed. More than in his other operas, Don Carlo focuses on individuals in whose lives politics and private dealings are closely intervined. However, unlike Friedrich Schiller, Verdi gives precedence to personal conflicts over political ideals. The Staatsoper features the Italian Milan version in four acts. (Source: Wiener Staatsoper)
