“Political power, religious power and oppression, romance, love – almost a teenager’s world full of confusion. It really is everything. It’s everything that the opera is supposed to be about. Murder, incest – it’s all there,” Pittas said.

Pittas also discussed how he approached the part of Don Carlo.
