The premiere of grand opera Don Carlos took place at Salle le Peletier, after being commissioned and produced by Paris Opéra. It was based on Schiller's drama „Don Carlos, Infant von Spanien“, telling a story of life conflicts of Prince of Asturias. Verdi made several cuts to it after it was apparent that the work is too long.
