The double chants of Carlo and Rodrigo's friendship and the fierce double chants of Elisabetta and Carlo are followed by famous arias such as The Song of the Veil by The Duke of Evoli, Fate of the Great Destiny, the King's heartbreaking aria "Let's Sleep Alone" and Elisabetta's "Better Know the Sky of the World."

Story Mori
[Act 1] In the middle of the 16th century. The Prince of Spain, Don Carlo, was engaged to and loved Elisabetta, princess of France, but she married Carlo's father, King Filippo II of Spain. In despair, Carlo and his best friend, Rodrygo, marquis of Poza, encourage him to save the Flemish people who wanted to be freed from tyranny. Carlo asks her to meet Elizabetta at Rodrigo's Yori and ask her to ask her father to give him permission to go to Flemish. Full of thought, Carlo hugs Elisabetta, but she unties her arm.

[Act 2] The Eprius Evoli, a woman with absolute confidence in her beauty, loves Carlo, but is confessed to love by Carlo by herself, knows that he loves Elisabetta, and angrily vows revenge. When the heretic's fire sentence begins in the square, Carlo with the Flemish serf appears and appeals to the king about the current state of Flemish. Carlo is imprisoned for treason because he pulled out his sword to the king who refused.

[Act 3] Filippo II is overcome by loneliness not loved by his wife. He asks the religious presiding judge who came there for his opinion on the response to Carlo and Flemish, but the religious presiding judge tells him that Rodrygo is the threat. In Evoli's ploy, evidence of Elisabetta's thoughts on Carlo is in filippo II's hands. Evoly, who saw the king taunt Elisabetta, severely regrets his actions and confesses to Elisabetta his mistress's relationship with the king. Rodrygo is assassinated by the king's men, saying goodbye to Carlo, who dies after he is all guilty of inciting Flemish.

[Act 4] Monastery of San Giusto. Carlo, who left for Flemish, parted with Elisabetta, pledging to reunite in heaven. Filippo II and the religious presiding judge try to capture Carlo, but the ghost of his earlier emperor, Carlo V, pulls Carlo into the tomb.
