Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Mozart's magnificent dramma giocoso is an opera of extremes and ambiguities, and Nikolaus Harnoncourt – always intrepid and imaginative – explores them to thrilling effect. Seductive, but dangerous as Don Giovanni, Thomas Hampson – abetted by the sonorous Leporello of László Polgár – preys on the Zerlina of Barbara Bonney as he seeks to escape the vengeance of Donna Anna, sung by Edita Gruberová, and the obsession of Roberta Alexander's Donna Elvira.
