Don Carlo is a co-production of the Metropolitan Opera, Royal Opera House Covent Garden and the Norwegian National Opera and Ballet

Performing Version
The Met's new production is played in five acts with two intermissions, the first between Acts 2 and 3, and the second after Act 3. The version used is Verdi's final revision from 1886, sung in Italian, including the act that takes place at Fontainebleau (Act 1). It is almost identical to the version used in the Met's previous production by John Dexter, with the exception of the opening section of the Fontainebleau scene. Instead of the longer scene between Elisabeth and the woodcutters which opened the opera in the Dexter production, the new production uses the abbreviated version with which Verdi replaced the original just before the Paris premiere in 1867.

The music of the Herald is sung by the Count of Lerma.

*Alexei Tarnovitski was listed as Alexei Tarnovitsky in the program.
