Don Giovanni


A production featuring striking visual effects

Seville, Spain. Don Giovanni's bid to seduce Donna Anna ends up with him ghting and killing her father, the Commendatore. In the ensuing imbroglio, Don Giovanni makes passes at girls and ees from jealous ancés, aided and abetted by his servant Leporello. In the end the ghost of the Commendatore carries off him off, still resolutely unrepentant.

The Liceu is fortunate to be able to offer two top-quality casts with Mariusz Kwiecien ́ and Carlos Álvarez in the title role.

Holten's hi-tech production is set amid impracticable platforms and stairs. Don Giovanni's mindset is re ected in the special effects, projected images, and excellent lighting.
