Members of the Washington National Opera (WNO) perform selections from Giuseppe Verdi's Don Carlo, in which family ties fray and unravel in a spectacle of forbidden passion, political intrigue, and shattering betrayal set at the height of the Spanish Empire. Nearly 20 years have passed since WNO last staged this grand masterpiece in four acts. The production runs through March 17 at the Kennedy Center.
