Don Giovanni – W. A. Mozart – Festival d’Aix-en-Prevence 2017 – ARTE

The complete opera Don Giovanni by W. A. Mozart can currently be viewed on the homepage of Arte. This is a video from a performance in Aix-en-Provence from beginning of July. I like this version very much, and can recommend it to everybody who loves operas by Mozart.

Don Giovanni is my favorite opera, and I have played the Canzonetta several times on the opera stage. This is really a prefect composition for an aria with mandolin accompanyment.

Jérémie Rhorer conducts the Cercle de l’Harmonie in Don Giovanni, an opera composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791), staging by Jean-François Sivadier, with Philippe Sly in the main role of Don Giovanni, Nahuel di Pierro in Leproello, Eleonora Buratto in Donna Anna, Pavol Breslik in Don Ottavio, Isabel Leonard in Donna Elvira, Julie Fuchs inZerlina, Krzysztof Baczyk in Masetto and David Leigh in Commendatore. Live recording from the Festival international d’Art lyrique d’Aix-en-Provence in july 7th 2017.

The canzonetta starts at about minute 113 – so if you only want to listen to this masterpiece  you can skip forwart to this position!
