Don Giovanni at the Vienna Staatsoper
De Simone succeeds in sticking to the flow of the plot and to the music, in which the soloists and Riccardo Muti’s state opera orchestra have a crucial part. Muti spiritedly conducts with a sense for style and gives the singers room to shine. In the baroque ambiance of the theatre on the river Wien, we experience a “Don Giovanni” in a unique unity of theatrical pretence and top-rate musical performance.
“Adrianne Pieczonka as Donna Anna [presents] a forcefully drawn, well-focused performance.”
