The grand opera will form the centerpiece of the 2020 Salzburg Easter Festival, where it will be presented in a special four-act version with Manfred Trojahn’s new instrumental prologue, which has been specifically commissioned by the Festival. Yet, in its own genesis, Don Carlos has always been characterised by diverse versions and revisions.

dangers, wars, mud and misery. He inscribed the future within possibilities that his present

offered to him. His future and present were entangled through the war that it was becoming

his past.
