On September 15, the premiere of G. Verdi’s opera “Don Carlos” at the Grand Theater of Geneva, directed by Lydia Steyer, in which Dmitry Ulyanov performed the role of the Spanish King Philip II, was held with great success. Dmitry's partners on stage were such wonderful artists as Charles Castronovo (Don Carlos, Infante of Spain), Rachel Willis-Sørensen (Elizabeth of Valois), Yves-Maud Hubo (Princess of Eboli) and others. The orchestra was conducted by Mark Minkowski.

Performances in Grand Theater of Geneva will take place on September 21, 24, 26 and 28, 2023.

“Russian bass Dmitry Ulyanov, in particular, is distinguished by exemplary clarity of diction: Philip II, as expected, alternates the harshness of brutal attacks with the meditative poetry of a monologue in symbiosis with the accompanying cello.”
