MOZART: Don Giovanni (Prague version)
Pre-concert discussion with Iván Fischer and Jane Moss on Saturday, August 6, at 6:00 in the Irene Diamond Education Center. Limited seating available on a first come, first served basis.
Mozart’s most haunting opera, Don Giovanni, is the portrait of a too-passionate young man who—driven by lust and excess—charms, deceives, and abuses, until he finally takes things too far. In this unusual, dramatic new rendering, the human body takes center stage; the singers, who include the “vocal Renoir” soprano Laura Aikin (Opernwelt), perform on a stark, black stage alongside 16 young actors, who use their bodies to form the set and the props.
“This is extravagant music, and Mr. Fischer and his fine, eager players missed no opportunity to make it so.”
