Here is a Don Giovanni with a very local Parisian flavour with Étienne Dupuis in the title role and Philippe Sly playing Leporello. The Australian soprano Nicole Car and the Belgian master Ivo van Hove complete a quartet that has everything for success.

What is this passion that drives Don Giovanni to seduce, subdue, conquer women one after the other, with the fevered coldness of a predator seizing its prey, pursuing through them an obscure prize that forever evades him? For his second collaboration with Da Ponte, Mozart was to brand the history of the opera and forever haunt European culture. Kierkegaard invites us to listen in the Dissolu puni “for the whisper of temptation, the whirlwind of seduction, the silence of the moment”. Mozart-Da Ponte’s cycle continues with Don Giovanni being entrusted to Ivo Van Hove. With a long tradition of examining the political meaning of works, the director produces, after Boris Godunov, his second production for the Opéra de Paris.
