NOTES ON THE PERFORMANCE

Intelligent and spectacular, the show by Robert Carsen that opened the 2011/2012 Season with mirrors and curtains, illusions and delusions, returns to the stage marking Paavo Järvi’s first time at La Scala. The Estonian Maestro, Music Director of the Orchestre de Paris, is a distinguished interpreter of Mozart, as he has demonstrated in several concerts leading the Wiener Philharmoniker. The libertine at twilight, caught in the moment when his ability to seduce seems to be running out, is played by a charismatic Thomas Hampson in a cast that includes the young Hanna-Elisabeth Müller as Donna Anna, Bernard Richter as Don Ottavio and Luca Pisaroni as Leporello.
