We will be continuing in our programme further on the so called line of classicism with Mozart-Da Ponte’s masterpiece Don Giovanni (1787), considered even today one of the greatest works of operatic art. The myth about the dissolute seducer has been inspiring philosophers, writers and composers until the present times as well as opening many a question about the inner freedom and freedom of thought. The librettist Da Ponte, with whom the wonder boy from Salzburg already triumphed in the operatic masterpiece The Marriage of Figaro, found the story for their second opera in the then quite popular play The Trickster of Seville and the Stone Guest (1630) by Spanish playwright Tirso de Molina, in its operatic interpretation by the composer Giuseppe Gazzaniga, and above all in Molièr’s dramatic hero Don Juan. Mozart (1756–1791) composed his Don Giovanni - mostly presented on our stages under the title of Don Juan -, for the Prague Theatre, and experienced a smashing success. The theatre director Diego de Brea, who has lately asserted himself - mostly abroad -, as an extraordinary operatic director as well, will be directing on the Ljubljana Opera stage for a very first time.
