An NCPA-The Metropolitan Opera (New York) Presentation
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was the son of a Salzburg court musician who exhibited him as a musical prodigy throughout Europe. His achievements in opera, in terms of beauty, vocal challenge and dramatic insight, remain unsurpassed. Aided by his ingenious librettist, Lorenzo Da Ponte, Mozart approached his operatic retelling of the myth of Don Juan from a point of view that is neither tragic nor entirely comic, but rather light-hearted, urbane and ironic. Mozart’s score teems with the elegance and grace that marks his entire output, which is evident from the first measures of the ravishing overture. This combination of musical refinement and extraordinary dramatic expression makes Don Giovanni one of the longest enduring and universally beloved works in the standard repertoire.
