In the organizer's words:
"The poet E.T.A. Hoffmann called Mozart's "Don Giovanni" "the opera of all operas. Since its premiere in Prague in 1787, the work has been highly esteemed and has triumphed throughout Europe. Mozart drew on the full range of his musical creativity - and his congenial librettist Da Ponte succeeded in telling the old familiar story in a new and lively way. Characters with individual contours move around the stage, with an astonishing wealth of emotions. Comedic elements are just as present as the abysmal and demonic - when the title hero is confronted with death, the action grows to tragic grandeur. With only eight singing and acting persons a whole world is unfolded, which once again clearly shows the audience what music and theater can achieve. The Mozart-Da Ponte trilogy, which director Vincent Huguet and conductor Daniel Barenboim have designed together, is completed with "Don Giovanni".
