"The poet E.T.A. Hoffmann called Mozart's Don Giovanni "the opera of all operas". Since its premiere in Prague in 1787, the work has been highly regarded and has triumphed throughout Europe. Mozart drew on the full range of his musical creativity - and his congenial librettist Da Ponte succeeded in telling the old familiar story in a new and lively way.


Characters with individual contours move around the stage, with an astonishing wealth of emotions.

Comedic elements are just as present as the abysmal and demonic - when the title hero is confronted with death, the action grows to tragic grandeur.

With only eight singers and actors, a whole world unfolds, showing the audience once again what music and theatre can achieve.

The Mozart-Da Ponte trilogy, which director Vincent Huguet and conductor Daniel Barenboim designed together, is completed with "Don Giovanni".

  • Musical direction: Marc Minkowski
