Conductor is the up and coming Constantin Trinks. Grischa Asagaroff makes his third appearance at NNTT as the producer; he is reputed for convincing and easily understable interpretations in his productions. Lucio Gallo takes on the role of Don Giovanni, he was Jack Rance in “La fanciulla del West” (The Girl of the Golden West) in April 2007. This superb cast is rounded out with Elena Mosuc as Donna Anna (also planned as Violetta in “La traviata” in 2008), Juan José Lopera as Don Ottavio, and Aga Mikolaj as Donna Elvira.


ACT I. Commendatore’s palace. Dissolute nobleman Don Giovanni sneaks into the palace to seduce Donna Anna who cries for help, her father who comes to her aid is killed by Giovanni in a duel. Don Ottavio, her fiancé, swears vengeance on the assassin. Giovanni’s servant Leporello distracts Donna Elvira, who was once seduced by his master, with the aria “Madamina il catalogo e questo” (My little lady, this is the catalogue). Giovanni joins the marriage celebration of Masetto and Zerlina outside where he quickly becomes enamored with the bride and attempts to seduce her, but Elvira arrives to thwart it. Anna walks into the scene, Giovanni still pursues her, but Elvira returns to ward off the seduction. Anna recognizes Giovanni’s voice and realizes that he is the murderer of her father. Giovanni holds a masked party, where Anna, Zerlina, and Masetto are invited. Giovanni tries to seduce Zerlina but fails, then he tries to blame it on his servant, but that fails as well. The two somehow escape after being uncovered by Elvira, Ottavio, and Anna.

ACT II. Leporello exchanges cloaks with Giovanni, and the master attacks Masetto. Anna, Ottavio, Zerlina and Masetto threaten Leporello, who unmasks and escapes. At the cemetery Giovanni proposes to invite the Commendatore’s statue to dinner. The statue arrives to the dinner, but Giovanni still refuses to repent. Giovanni is surrounded by and dragged into hellfire. Anna, Ottavio, Elvira, Zerlina, and Masetto arrive at the house, where the shaken Leporello describes to them what he has witnessed. Among the castle ruins, the others plan their future and recite the moral: such is the fate of a wrongdoer.
