Mozart : Don Giovanni
Marc Minkowski and Ivan Alexandre have undertaken to stage the Mozart Da Ponte Trilogy in the two most famous Court theatres: the Drottningholm Royal Palace Theatre in Sweden and the Royal Opera in Versailles, both built in Mozart’s time.
Last season, their Nozze di Figaro was highly acclaimed: they now present Mozart’s most famous work, Don Giovanni, with a wonderful cast of singers, who are following the trilogy. With the direct approach of 18th century theatres on trestles, this performance takes the protagonists of Mozart’s Drama Giocoso on a whirlwind champagne evening that ends in hell.
