The Estepona City Council informs that it has scheduled the performance of the opera ‘Don Giovanni’ in the Plaza del Reloj so that citizens can enjoy this well-known piece by Mozart for free.
It will be represented by the Malaga company Teatro Lírico Andaluz next Thursday, August 10, at 10:00 p.m.
It is a humorous drama in two acts, with music by Maestro Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791) and a libretto in Italian by Lorenzo da Ponte, based on various sources, especially “Don Juan” by Tirso de Molina.
The opera ‘Don Giovanni’ is a jewel of international poetry; It was premiered at the National Theater in Prague on October 29, 1787. Qualified as perfect by specialized critics, Teatro Lírico Andaluz, a professional company that has worked on the best national stages for two decades, provides a cast of internationally renowned professional voices. for such an occasion.
A great scenic and musical montage lasting about two hours, with an outdoor staging. It has been made more accessible and agile to the public with the introduction of the text in Spanish alternating with the declamation of the music in Italian, hence the duration of two hours instead of three hours that the original lasts.
It is, without a doubt, one of the most brilliant pages in the history of opera, with the shocking and spectacular denouement at the end of the work, where The Commander takes the traitor, womanizer, cruel and libertine Don Giovanni to hell. , to the terror of his servant Leporello. A great musical version of the myth of Don Juan. A night to enjoy and be moved by the best music by Mozart and also, why not, shudder…
