Louis Langrée | Dmitri Tcherniakov | Festival d’Aix-en-Provence

Mozart : Don Giovanni

A new “Don Giovanni” in Aix by russian stage director Dmitri Tcherniakov and conductor Louis Langrée.

More than two centuries after its creation, the emotional pull of this supreme opera remains absolutely intact. Dmitri Therniakov duly revisits the myth and makes the seducer of Seville a ‘man without qualities’, a cipher whose words have a hypnotic power over women. His words will disrupt the proprieties ruling the Commandatore’s family. His words are also what makes Don Juan such a subversive figure and the embodiment of one of the most powerful modern European myths.

Leading the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra (Freiburger Barockorchester) one of the best Mozart current conductor, Louis Langrée takes from this formation magnificents tones. Bo Skovhus portrays a dispirited Don Giovanni, old playboy and anti-hero. Kyle Ketelsen is his servant Leporello, currently the most talented baritone for this role. The female trio is composed of Marlis Petersen (Donna Anna), Kristine Opolais (Elvira) and Kerstin Avemo (Zerlina).
