General Information


Of the three operas written with Da Ponte, Don Giovanni is indubitably the darkest and the most desperate. All the characters, the seducer and those around him, are possessed by breathless fury. Mozart offers them his most sombre, suspenseful, extreme and yet perfect music. Pierre Jean Jouve evoked it in these terms: "In this inspired work, instinct is capable of such Hysteria, in the strict sense of the term, of such extremes of behaviour, of intoxication and oblivion, of supreme positivism and absolute negativism, that we who have the same tendencies within ourselves, are swept along from sphere to sphere, with no hope of respite, venturing into the sombre regions of the human spirit, without ever leaving the exquisitely gilded frame of perfect, limpid beauty.”
Alain Altinoglu directs this now legendary production by the Austrian director and filmmaker Michael Haneke.
