There are two words that sum up this Don Carlo: Ferruccio Furlanetto. There is not a better interpreter of Filippo around today. He is absolutely magnificent every time he sings the role. His performance alone makes this DVD worth the money. Naturally, "Ella giammai m'amo" is the highlight of this Don Carlo. The other gem of this production is Simon Keenlyside as Rodrigo. His voice and acting are elegant and perfect for the role. Unfortunately, I can't say much for Marina Poplavskaya or Rolando Villazon, and I prefer Sonia Ganassi in Rossini. If you're like me, Furlanetto and Keenlyside are reason enough to add this Don Carlo to the opera shelf.
