Verdi treated the romantic story of the love affair that ended the ruler's life at the hands of his best friend as a stylistically perfect and thrilling opera. In it, he reflected on ethics in conflict with romantic passion, despair at a merciless fate, and loyalty transcending injustice and crime.
Running time is indicative, as the dress rehearsal is still due for the production.
