Along with Oedipus and Faust, Don Giovanni is one of the major figures of European culture. Tirso de Molina and Molière, Steve McQueen's "Shame", and countless other adaptations – he has fascinated artists for centuries. But of course, the legend of Don Giovanni will stay forever linked to Mozart (1756-1791). After the overture, we're carried off into a world of sex and blood to marvel at Don Giovanni’s fast-paced conquests, his inebriation, his lies. But what does he really stand for in the women's imagination? What does he mean to Donna Anna, Donna Elvira and Zerlina? Men readily identify with this bad boy, seeing him either as a formidable libertine or a hopeless case. But how do the women judge? For this new production, stage director Marie-Eve Signeyrole chooses to treat Don Giovanni not as a subject, but as an object in the eyes of the women he desires. Christian Curnyn is making his debut at the OnR as conductor of the Orchestre philharmonique de Strasbourg.
