Opera in 2 acts.
Mozart's masterpiece sounds in the Hermitage Theater performed by the St. Petersburg Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Sergei Stadler, People's Artist of Russia. The production involves soloists of the leading theaters of the city.
The legend of a daring tempter has been haunting the minds of authors and the public for centuries. Mozart's brilliant music leaves directors and viewers a huge field for interpretations of the eternal plot. Love or obsession? Insidious murder or tragic accident? And finally, who is Don Juan really - an unprincipled villain or a fearless fighter with ossification and moralism?
A new performance directed by Irina Fokina offers her answers to eternal questions. The magnificent voices of young artists, luxurious costumes and laconic scenery - all this in the new production of the Petersburg concert!
Don Juan continues a series of performances created especially for the Hermitage Theater. The artistic director of the production, Sergei Stadler, did not accidentally choose this particular work: the opera Don Giovanni is the same age as the theater, it is very suitable for this beautiful space.
