Mozart: Don Giovanni, opera / Ildebrando D'Arcangelo, Anett Fritsch, Tomasz Konieczny, Luca Pisaroni, Lenneke Ruiten. Christoph Eschenbach, Vienna PO [Blu-ray]

Notes & Reviews:

The first D minor chords thunder ominously from the orchestra pit, while on the stage, the entrance hall of an elegant hotel appears, symbolic of a place of non-committal encounters. Luxury seeps from the hotel’s every pore – the perfect place for Don Giovanni’s exercises in seduction. An ensemble of exquisite vocal talent accompanies the high aesthetic intrigue of the production’s masterful parody of our “everything is possible” time, brought to fruition by director Sven-Eric Bechtolf. “With his splendid timbre and stunningly virile magnetism, Ildebrando D’Arcangelo’s is an ideal realization of Don Giovanni.” (Neue Zürcher Zeitung) Luca Pisaroni, with his finely balanced voice, is an intellectually bespectacled Leporello. “The powerful bass of Commendatore Tomasz Konieczny is a true sensation.” (Frankfurter Rundschau) Anett Fritsch is highly dramatic as Elvira, the Donna Anna of Lenneke Ruitens supple in her vocal line and Valentina Nafornita “a wonderful Zerlina who radiates strong vocal sensuality.” (Opernnetz) The Special feature is a full length, real-time Behind the Scenes. Packaged in the luxury slipcase Salzburg Festival serial design.
