Arthaus presents the world premiere of the unabridged version of Don Carlos at the Vienna State Opera, in a staging by the world renowned German director Peter Konwitschny. This staging in its unabridged version remains true to Giuseppe Verdi's original vision of his grand opera, when it was premiered in Paris in 1867. However, during the rehearsals it soon became clear that Don Carlos would not fit within the convention of duration, and Verdi was forced, against his will, to make cuts. Over the next 20 years, he would repeatedly turn out new versions of the opera, none of which ultimately left him satisfied. Therefore it was not until October 2004 that his original work - without cuts and sung in the original French - received its world premiere, now available for home viewing on DVD. Led by French conductor Bertrand de Billy the singers were hailed by audience and critics. The international cast were all renowned soloists on the world's opera stages and also long-term stalwarts of the Vienna Opera.

\...the soloists are dominated by Nadja Michael, as the schemer Eboli. A slim lady, who is capable of enormous passion, who during the song of veils realizes a penchant for oriental luxury as well as mental cruelty..." Suddeutsche Zeitung
