These Flemish musicians provided the highlight of the festival: an adaptation of Mozart’s three Da Ponte operas. Deschonecompagnie presented Don Juan, Così and Le Nozze in the form of a brilliant miniature version without orchestra – the piano was the only permanent presence, joined by a violin for Così and a saxophone for Le Nozze. It sparkled with linguistic virtuosity in a crazy carousel of dual roles and clever simultaneous translations of the original Italian arias.
