Vaccine Required

Maryland Lyric Opera returns to Strathmore for concert performances of Verdi’s grand opera of forbidden passion and political intrigue, Don Carlo. Based on the historical characters and events of the Spanish Inquisition, Don Carlo features some of Verdi’s most beautiful music woven together with a story of personal, political, and theological conflicts, including the unforgettable “Grand Inquisitor” scene. The celebrated cast includes two international stars making their MDLO debuts—Arturo Chacón-Cruz as Don Carlo and Andrea Silvestrelli as King Filippo, and Elaine Alvarez as Elizabetta—alongside returning MDLO favorites Mark Delavan as Rodrigo, Catherine Martin as Princess Eboli, and Kenneth Kellogg as the Grand Inquisitor. MDLO Music Director Louis Salemno leads the MDLO Orchestra and Chorus in interpreting all the majesty of Verdi’s epic score. Performed in Italian with projected English titles. Running time: Approximately 3 hours and 20 minutes, including 1 intermission. Visit for more information.

This event is not presented by Strathmore.
