Notes & Reviews:
Sony Classical is proud to announce the release of Mozart: Don Giovanni on DVD and Blu-ray starring one of the most exciting opera singers of our time, Erwin Schrott in the title role with Thomas Hengelbrock conducting. The performance was filmed in May 2013 at the Festspielhause Baden- Baden. Described as "quite simply the leading Don Giovanni of our day" by The Stage, Erwin Schrott performs in his most celebrated role alongside Anna Netrebko as Donna Anna. The stellar cast that also includes Luca Pisaroni and Malena Ernman, is accompanied by the Balthasar Neumann Ensemble under the baton of renowned conductor Thomas Hengelbrock.
Erwin Schrott has gained accolades from audiences and critics alike with his charismatic, seductive stage presence and his voluminous bass-baritone voice with a dark timbre. He has performed at all the great opera houses of the world in roles that demand an outstanding personality and radiance - he is generally regarded as the best contemporary interpreter of the great Mozartian roles of Don Giovanni, Leporello and Figaro. Schrott has performed at the world's major opera houses including Theatro alla Scala, the Metropolitan Opera, Opera National de Paris, Royal Opera, Covent Gardens and many more.Notes & Reviews:
