The first of the triumvirate of Mozart’s last three superlative operas – Cosi fan Tutte (1790) and Die Zauberflöte (1791) being the others – Don Giovanni (1787) tells the tale of this legendary womanizer, already a cautionary tale of considerable merit, with the added power and weight of a brilliant musical setting by one of mankind’s greatest musical geniuses and a stunningly effective libretto by Lorenzo da Ponte. This tragicomedy of the highest order cries out for the finest musical forces, voices and staging
Read more to be truly overwhelming and meaningful. The cast for this production includes Ildebrando D´Arcangelo (“doesn’t do Don Giovanni; he is the Don. Unsurpassable” 24 Ore) and Carmela Remigio (“an exceptionally passionate and tender Donna Elvira.” (La Stampa) With direction from Riccardo Frizza and one of Italy’s finest stage and set designers on hand in veteran Pier Luigi Pizzi, the course is set for a staggering night at the opera.
