Mozart: Don Giovanni (Gran Teatre del Liceu)

Feb. 2006 - Opus Arte



Mozart: Don Giovanni (Gran Teatre del Liceu)

Calixto Bieito's famously controversial 2002 production of Mozart's great opera sets the action in the late twentieth century and brings to life an ancient story brilliantly retold. Bertrand de Billy conducts an energetic cast led by Wojtek Drabowicz in the title role, with the Liceu's Orchestra Academy.


"The musical performance has its own distinction, as well as complete integration with the staging concept." - Gramophone

"It's a strong cast, led by Drabowicz's nobly-voiced, savage Don, and Youn's powerful Leporello." - BBC Music Magazine

"A fully rounded piece of work...Coherent production, perfectly staged, impeccable singers." - El Periodico

"Musically much better than the London version... Véronique Gens makes a wonderful Donna Elvira, confident, strong, perfect both in her singing and acting." - El Pais
