In 1964 Deutsche Oper Berlin still had no General Music Director. But Artistic Director Gustav Rudolf Sellner made a virtue out a necessity and – in addition to the permanent conductor Heinrich Hollreiser and

the regular guest conductor Karl Böhm – brought in further conductors from home and abroad for individual productions. For Don Carlos he invited Wolfgang Sawallisch, who since 1957 had been making a

name for himself at the Bayreuth Festival, above all with Tannhäuser and the Flying Dutchman and since 1960 had been acting General Music Director in Hamburg.

He had at his disposal an ensemble of outstanding soloists. In addition to Josef Greindl and Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, they included James King in the title role, Pilar Lorengar, Martti Talvela, Patricia Johnson and Lisa Otto as the Voice from Heaven.

“More than any other opera by Verdi, “Don Carlos” calls for a cast of elite performers. This production...features a dream team of singers.” Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

“The production by Deutsche Oper Berlin ... achieves a beautiful balance between the stage drama and the music. It proves that there are still singers who can perform Verdi’s melodies at the highest level and that it is also possible to bring them together into an ensemble. The production fulfils all one’s expectations of the modern city of Berlin in terms of stylishness and performance.” Der Tagesspiegel
