Opera "Don Giovanni"
This popular work by Mozart relates a glorious love story involving the charming and unparalleled playboy, Don Giovanni, as well as his shocking end.
The story is accompanied by the devilishly charming protagonist, his endearing servant Leporello and a number of beautiful arias sung by the leading female roles, climaxing in a breathtaking confrontation with the stone statue and the final descent into hell. 'Madamina, il catalogo è questo', 'Là ci darem la mano' and 'Fin ch'han dal vino' are especially significant highlights of this opera. This production by Grischa Asagaroff is set in Venice, with the lead role based on real-life 18th-century charmer, Casanova.
It was conducted by Paolo Olmi, highly acclaimed in Italian opera. The world-renowned Italian baritone Simone Alberghini took the title role and delighted the audience with his incandescent acting and singing. In addition, leading singers including Myrtò Papatanasiu, Serena Malfi, Renato Dolcini and Leonardo Cortellazzi starred in a feast of beautiful ensemble alongside the Japanese cast including Kono Teppei, Kondo Kei and Ishibashi Emi.
Please enjoy this beloved opera, which has been performed repeatedly at the NNTT, in the comfort of your own home.
