Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mozart - Don Giovanni (Smith, Wiener Symphoniker) [DVD] (DVD)
This is well sung, well acted and brilliantly directed and produced. This Opera really lends itself to the updated setting, the themes being as relevant as ever.
The Perry brothers in the 2 lead roles are excellent in voice and performance and the production, whilst eminently musical is appropriately dark and menacing. This is not your typical frothy Jack the Lad Don Giovanni, a seducer and Casanova character. Here he is portrayed as he really is, a self-centred narcissist, rapist, border-line paedophile, and sociopath.
I would recommend this along with Sellars' other Mozart productions. All excellent
