It looks like I won't be able to keep up the pace of a post every day, after all. Some scenes (like this one) are longer and more complicated and so take more time. Thanks to the commenters at [livejournal.com profile] linguaphiles and my mother for helping me with some confusing bits. As always, any remaining mistakes are entirely mine.

Giuseppe Verdi's opera Don Carlos, first set to a French libretto in 1867, is more commonly performed in its revised Italian version, Don Carlo. In this powerful scene for bass and baritone, King Philip II of Spain (Philippe) questions Rodrigo (Rodrigue), the idealistic Marquis of Posa, and gets more than he bargained for.
