Don Carlo is a fragile figure, unable to face what society demands of him. He is a dreamer, closer to the world of fantasy than to reality. He is and still is Trapped in the same place and this captivity describes his condition in the world. He can’t find a place in the universe he was born into, and seems to be in the wrong place: his father rejects him and the woman he loves becomes his mother after marrying Philip II.

As the five acts unfold, more and more characters reveal themselves in despair and loneliness. “
