Don Juan, the epitome of the seducer, inspired Mozart to one of his most influential operas – frivolous, witty and profound all at once. In his version of Don Giovanni, director Herbert Fritsch »abandons the formal, virtuoso arrangement of nonsense« and »thereby gives the audience freedom of interpretation« [FAZ]. In doing so, he draws on the core of Don Juan and brings him to new life as a malicious harlequin – a loser, audacious, side-splittingly funny and irresistible all at once, framed by the delicate, utterly dark pinnacle of Mozartean music. A »fascinating and intelligent interpretation removed from all platitudes« [klassik.com].

In the repertoire since 30 Nov 2014

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.
