World's greatest playboy or liberty seeker? Don Juan is a legendary hero that continues to fascinate us. Countless artists have portrayed this figure but Mozart's masterpiece Don Giovanni towers above them all. In turns a light-hearted comedy and a psychodrama, some have called it the greatest opera in the repertoire for its cathartic power. In this revival production, Nicola ULIVIERI plays a mature and sexy Don Juan. The female roles are played by three emerging stars: Donna Elvira by Japanese mezzo WAKIZONO Aya, who is making a name for herself in Italian opera houses including La Scala, Donna Anna by rising Croatian soprano Marigona QERKEZI in her role debut, and Zerlina by KUSHIMA Kanae, a graduate of the New National Theatre Opera Studio. Tenor Juan Francisco GATELL, acclaimed for the bel canto repertoire, sings Don Ottavio, while experienced singers Giovanni FURLANETTO and KUBO Kazunori play Leporello and Masetto respectively. The production is conducted by German Karsten JANUSCHKE, highly regarded for his spirited and energetic renditions of Mozart operas, in his NNTT debut. You can expect great things from this Don Giovanni.




Synopsis

Serial seducer Don Giovanni makes nightly visits to women's apartments while his servant Leporello keeps watch. On this night, he visits Donna Anna but he is found out by her father, the Commendatore, and in a struggle Don Giovanni kills him. Donna Anna asks her fiancé, Don Ottavio, to avenge her father's death.
Meanwhile, Giovanni meets another woman who turns out to be Donna Elvira, one of his former conquests, who had come searching for him. He makes a quick escape and Leporello, left with her, explains that his master has seduced over 2000 women all over Europe.
In the village, the wedding of Masetto and Zerlina is taking place, and Giovanni attempts to seduce the bride, but Elvira intervenes. Anna asks Giovanni for his help in finding her father's murderer, only to realize that he is the villain. Giovanni, in a merry mood, invites the whole wedding party to his villa. Anna, Elvira, and Ottavio enter, disguised as guests, and accuse him of his crime.

Don Giovanni exchanges clothes with Leporello in order to seduce Elvira's maid. Just then, Masetto leads a group of peasants in search of Giovanni, and he confides his plan to Leporello - actually Giovanni in disguise - and gets beaten up. The real Leporello, in Giovanni's clothes, escapes from Elvira and others and is reunited with his master.
As they pass the graveyard, the statue of the Commendatore suddenly speaks. Fearless, Giovanni invites him to dinner. The statue arrives and urges Giovanni to repent, but he refuses and is engulfed in flames.
