broj djela o don Juanu zacijelo nadilazi i sam navodni broj njegovih
osvajanja. Faust i don Juan kreirani su kao upozorenje na prelazak čovjeku
postavljenih granica - Faust u potrazi za apsolutnim znanjem i moći, Juan
za životom u neobuzdanoj senzualnosti bez vjere. Obojicu stiže božanska
osveta. No, ta je dobro znana okosnica poslužila Mozartu za stvaranje
glazbene strukture koja gotovo natkriljuje ljepotu Moliereova izraza.
Uz maestra Pavla Dešpalja, jednog od najcjenjenijih hrvatskih dirigenata, Don Giovannija postavlja Attila Vidnyánszky, mađarski redatelj koji je nedavnim impresivnim režijama Wagnera i Šostakoviča na sebe već skrenuo pozornost europske javnosti, a u glavnim ulogama pratit ćemo Ivicu Čikeša, Lucijana Batinića, Antu Jerkunicu, Riikku Hakolu, Adelu Golac-Rilović, Ricarda Mirabellija, Martinu Gojčetu Silć, Petju Ivanovu, Katju Konvalinku i Sinišu Štorka.
number of works about Don Juan probably exceeds the very number of his
alleged conquests. Faust and Don Juan were created as a warning of
trespassing limits set to a man – Faust searching for absolute knowledge
and power, Juan searching for a life of unrestrained sensuality without
faith. Neither of them escaped the divine punishment. However, Mozart used
this well-known plot to create a musical structure that almost outclasses
the beauty of Molière’s expression.
the arias of the main characters more attractive, or is it their recitals
or the numerous ensembles which are probably the height of Mozart’s
expression? May it be that Mozart’s partitures are rarely present on our
opera programs due to the complex mixture of Italian melody, German
seriousness about the harmony treatment and a strange sensibility typical
only of a genius composers like Mozart?” These are the questions
regularly asked before the new performance. The characters are brought to
musical-scene perfection. “It is Mozart being not only relaxed and
gracious, but also dramatic, serious and tragic, while the characteristics
of each personality are developed gradually throughout the play: Don
Giovanni dissolute and voluptuous, cheerful and intolerant leads and
entangles the whole game, the game of human destinies. It is not enough
for him to play with poor donna Elvira, desperate donna Anna and her fiancée
Ottavio, but also tries to have an adventure with naïve peasant
Zerlina, and besides, whenever he wishes, he gets his servant Leporello
into an unenviable position…” However, Mozart, being least of all a
moralist, will not punish him for his sins, but for his stubborn egotism
which demanded a price to be paid at all times: human, social or divine.
the most prominent Croatian conductor maestro Pavle Dešpalj, Don
Giovanni is put on the stage by Attila Vidnyánszky, a Hungarian
