Don Carlo fun

Back in the film days it was fun playing with negatives in the darkroom.  What does the music sound like? Make the images. DON CARLO, auto de fe scene, the Inquisition, tuba music, glorious, but my favorite scene in all of opera is the Grand Inquisitor entrance, done as Act III, scene i at the Met, contrabassoon music, absolutely intestinal. Here, 1979, the Grand Inquisitor is James Morris.
