About

In few words:

For his second collaboration with Da Ponte, Mozart would mark the history of opera with his Don Giovanni: a rake who conquers and subjugates women with the cold brutality of a predator stalking its prey. Power is at the heart of Ivo van Hove’s theatre. For this keen admirer of Shakespeare, the stage is a place where contradictory forces must coexist, even if it means plunging the audience into the realms of doubt by depriving them of their reassuring certainties. The director revisits the mythical figure of the seducer who has haunted European culture for centuries and turns him into a cruel and manipulative character undermining the social order.
