Giuseppe Verdi: Don Carlo

This grand opera in five acts is probably my favorite. Full of great melodies and big set pieces, what sets it apart is its intimacy and well-drawn characters. It meanders beautifully, allowing each character his / her private moments amidst all the pomp and show. Not the usual stick figures.
