About the Event
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.
No other work of Mozart's demonstrates in such consistent fashion his frontal attack on every convention – not only in terms of content, but also as regards form. New characters tumble onstage with such abandon that nothing links them apart from the constantly fleeing main protagonist. The first act sees a finale with murder in the air. And the ensemble at the happy ending arrives so unexpectedly that the eyes and ears strain with disbelief. A deadly serious game cloaked in the playful, lascivious peak of Mozart's music. Jordan de Souza‘s directorial debut at the Komische Oper marks the beginning of a new chapter in its Mozart cycle.
In German, with German, English, French, and Turkish subtitles.
Introduction in German 30 minutes before the beginning of the performance in the Komische Oper Berlin Foyer.
