Don Giovanni

DRAMMA GIOCOSO IN ZWEI AKTEN
Don Juan, the epitome of the seducer, inspired Mozart to one of his most influential operas. Frivolous, witty and profound all at once. The perfect opportunity for Herbert Fritsch, the master of theatrical folly, whose highly musical style of staging is tailor-made for this "light-hearted spectacle" about fatal passions.

Libretto by Francesco Maria Piave
"A comic opera that goes horribly wrong" – Barrie Kosky’s celebrated staging of Verdi’s masterpiece returns to the schedule with a new cast under the guidance of General Musical Director Henrik Nánási – and is sung in Italian. "Planned as a nightmare, shot through with all manner of clowning, it grows into an adventure of musical theatre that is truly beyond compare," [Berliner Morgenpost].
