Don Giovanni (Salzburg Festival 2014), Trailer

submitted by Marvin's Underground Music Ondemand on 05/08/18 1

The first D minor chords thunder ominously from the orchestra pit, while on the stage, the entrance hall of an elegant hotel appears, symbolic of a place of non-committal encounters. Luxury seeps from every pore of the stairs, galleries and mysterious doors. This is the present residence of Don Giovanni and his servant Leporello. A perfect place for Don Giovanni’s exercises in seduction. Director Sven-Eric Bechtolf pulls off a brilliant coup with the high aesthetics of his intrigue, a masterful parody of the “everything is possible” of our time - flanked by an ensemble of exquisite vocal talents: Ildebrando D’Arcangelo, testosterone-charged Latin lover, amounts “with his splendid timbre and his stunningly virile magnetism to what must be an ideal realization of Don Giovanni” (Neue Zürcher Zeitung). Wiener Philharmoniker Philharmonia Chor Wien Conducted by Christoph Eschenbach Staged by Sven-Eric Bechtolf With: Ildebrando D’Arcangelo; Tomasz Konieczny; Lenneke Ruiten; Andrew Staples; Anett Fritsch; Luca Pisaroni; Valentina Naforniţa; Alessio Arduini Special feature: Full length realtime BEHIND THE SCENES with Pictur in Picture Function (Blu-ray) and Multi-Angle Function DVD // For further information please visit our homepage: bit.ly/donginfo
