Editorial Reviews

Set at a time of seismic social and cultural change -- in a Fellini-esque vision of post-war life -- Jonathan Kent's urgently propulsive production offers a `white-knuckle rollercoaster ride' through the events of the Don Giovanni's last day as they unfold in and around Paul Brown's magical `box of tricks' set.

Festival Music Director Vladimir Jurowski leads The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and the Glyndebourne Chorus in this amazing production of Don Giovanni at Glyndebourne. Kate Royal, singing Donna Elvira, is joined by Gerald Finley in the title role, Luca Pisaroni's Leporello, and Russian soprano Anna Samuil in her UK Opera debut as Donna Anna. The winning team of director Jonathan Kent and designer Paul Brown create a sumptuous, awesome new staging -- the first new Glyndebourne production of the opera in 10 years.

The DVD contains exclusive bonus features including rehearsal and backstage footage, interviews with the production staff and cast as well as a glimpse into the costume, design and technical departments at Glyndebourne.

The concept behind Jonathan Kent's production of Don Giovanni for Glyndebourne 2010 is somewhat tenuous in how its 1950s' setting relates to the pre-Enlightenment years of the opera's original period, but it proves to be not entirely without merit. It's not that Don Giovanni doesn't bear up well to modern interpretations - it's perhaps the Mozart opera most apt and subject to contemporary reworking - it's just that, even with the free-love of the 1960s just around the corner, the production's supposed "Fellini-esque vision of post-war life" doesn't succeed in grasping the spirit of the period or present all that convincing a parallel to the Age of Enlightenment.

The production at least starts off like it intends to make something of the risqué premise of Mozart's opera, with a quite brutal enactment of the rape and murder scene, but thereafter, it settles down to a rather non-committal blandness. The 1950s' setting doesn't really suit the wider European expansive viewpoint of the continental philanderer, but rather closes it down without seeming to bring any exciting or meaningful new ideas to the table in its place. The drabness and unimaginativeness of the setting (although technically impressive) is unfortunately reflected in the performances, which rather lack commitment. Everyone, but everyone - particularly Anna Samuil's Donna Anna - seems to walk around in a trance, scarcely showing any feeling or expression of the predilections and predicaments of their characters.

Unlike other reviewer who praises Jurowski, I found the orchestra very disappointing from the first. Winds and timpani are too emphasized (especially, at dramatic moments like the last scene) to hear strings -- this is a very cheap way to create climax, which, however, is Not Mozart. Just compare Jurowski's overture with Muti's at Wiener Staatsoper (1999) on Youtube, and you will notice totally different music, even though I admit that OAE is not VPO and Jurowski is not Muti.

Great performance of this timeless classic. Both the acting and the singing were terrific. The characters were multi-faceted, showing the levels of interaction with Don Giovanni as a person.
