Don Giovanni (Pafos Opera) 2/3/4 September 2016 at the Pafos Medieval Castle

 One of the greatest works of the operatic repertoire and one of the leading lyric masterpieces of all times, the outstanding Don Giovanni by W.A. Mozart is to be presented at the 18th edition of Pafos Aphrodite Festival on September 2, 3 and 4 at the square of the Medieval Castle in Pafos in co-production with Parma Opera Organization C.E.F.A.C. with the participation of the Cyprus Symphony Orchestra.

 

Mozart’s Don Giovanni is an opera in two acts and the libretto was written by Lorenzo Da Ponte. It premiered at the Estates Theatre in Prague on 29 October 1787. Da Ponte’s libretto was considered, like many of its time, as drama giocoso, a term that denotes a combination of serious and comic action.

 

In Don Giovanni, Mozart’s music renders all aspects of a man who goes against god and takes his fate in his own hands.  In this imposing work, which musically elevates the curtain of Romanticism with the most impressive way, nothing is what it seems, since the ambiguity permeates the poetic text but also the music. The intense dramatic music which accompanies the appearance of the otherworldly element and the extensive arias of the nobles come into direct dialogue with the lighthearted, everyday reverberation of the comic characters.
