Don Giovanni in Sweden
09. December 2017, 8pm
Concept and Direction: Agnes Fabich & Franziska Guggenbichler Beck
Cinema Cantabile developed this unique format which combines opera and cinema. This time they dealt with one of the most multi-layered oeuvres in music history: “Don Giovanni” by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
Don Giovanni returns to his village and the story about passion, obsession and tragedy takes its course. All the characters on the screen do not talk or sing themselves. Opera singers who are present in the cinema theatre synchronize their lip movements.
It is up to the audience to decide whether it is the screen or the live music who is telling the truth.
For this performance, the pianist Richard Siedhoff will elaborate a special composition that is based on the music of Mozart’s opera.
After the performance, the film “Sherlock Jr.“ by Buster Keaton will be screened and accompanied by Richard Siedhoff.
