Continuing the approach already tested in Così fan tutte and Le nozze di Figaro, René Jacobs offers new keys to a reinterpretation of one of the most famous operas in the repertoire. All the yellowed varnish deposited in this timeless story during the 19th century vanishes here, making way for the dazzking colours of the music, the bite of the recitatives, the contrasts supplied by an unerring dramatic instinct.
Performed at the Innsbruck Festival in August 2006 and filmed in Baden-Baden, this staging has been much praised by the international press. In the documentary Looking for Don Giovanni, the director Nayo Titzin followed the creators if this production in their search for a certain musical truth.
An Innsbrucker Festwochen production.
Recorded live at the Festspielhaus Baden Baden, Germany, 6 October 2006.
