Notes on the performancesOpen 
È aperto a tutti quanti! Viva la libertà!”
“My house is open to everyone! Long live liberty!” (End of Act I)


In Mozart’s opera, the eternal myth that is Don Giovanni champions Eros as a driving force for freedom, fighting for his own ideals to the point of defying fate. Robert Carsen’s staging of Don Giovanni keeps with this idea in his first production specifically for La Scala.

Daniel Barenboim conducts a stellar cast that includes Peter Mattei (Don Giovanni), Anna Netrebko (Donna Anna), Giuseppe Filianoti (Don Ottavio), Barbara Frittoli (Donna Elvira), Bryn Terfel (Leporello) and Ildebrando D’Arcangelo (alternating in the roles of Don Giovanni and Leporello).
