From Venice’s legendary Teatro La Fenice comes Mozart’s timeless story of betrayal and revenge, on the legends of Don Juan. a fictional libertine and seducer. This extravagant showcase for singers is a sophisticated mix of comedy, drama, supernatural elements – and the composer’s own fear of his father’s wrath. Of course, it is the glorious music as heard on Cinestudio’s state of the art sound system that promises to enchant listeners, 232 years after its premiere. In the words of author Gustave Flaubert, “The three finest things ever made by God are the sea, Hamlet, and Don Giovanni.”
