Don Giovanni

W. A. Mozart


Dramma giocoso in two acts. Libretto by Lorenzo Da Ponte

Performed in Italian with Russian subtitles 

The opera was written in 1787. This version was first performed in Perm in 2014. Running time: 3 hours 20 minutes including 1 interval

Mozart's most famous masterpiece, Don Giovanni, brings the “The Mozart — Da Ponte Trilogy in Perm” project to a close. Three collaborations between a great composer and a great librettist will have been staged consecutively at one Russian theatre. Starting in 2011 and running to the present, the project, which has led to the emergence of such a cultural concept as ‘Perm Mozart’, has been headed by the conductor Teodor Currentzis, but has also presented other directorial approaches to visual evocation of the great music. In the case of Don Giovanni we can see a different view of Mozart — a feminine view.

Argentinean director Valentina Carrasco, who mastered Wagner’s Der Ring des Nibelungen in 2013 (Buenos Aires), and in May 2014 took on Britten’s Turn of the Screw (Lyon), was invited to stage this performance. Part of the famous Catalan troupe “La Fura dels Baus”, which reproduces the soul of the music in effective scenic images, Valentina Carrasco plans to stylize the production in Perm in the spirit of film noir and populate the stage with mannequins and ‘surrogate’ people, among whom the only real person to be found is Don Giovanni.
