Added DiffLines:

* BrokenBase: Opera fans are split on whether the opera should be performed in French or Italian. The French words are the words Verdi originally set, and the Italian translation is sometimes awkward, but many of the best Verdi singers sound more comfortable in Italian than French.


* TearJerker: the scene of [[spoiler:Rodrigo]]'s death and Carlos and Elisabeth's farewell duet can sometimes make ''singers'' teary-eyed. On stage.

* FollowTheLeader: The political part of the plot concerns Carlos supporting the Dutch rebellion ''against'' his father who is about to send the Duke of Alba to crush it. Reliable sources tell that this essential plot thread - a rebellious son who supports a rebellion ''against his father'' - inspired Creator/GeorgeLucas when he hatched the plotline of Franchise/StarWars in 1977.
