Mozarts Don Juan, Così and Le Nozze in 1 day

Don Juan, Così and Le Nozze are adaptations of Mozarts operas Don Giovanni, Così fan tutte and Le Nozze di Figaro, the only three collaborations between W.A. Mozart and the librettist Lorenzo Da Ponte.

Together these three operas are seen as a trilogy in the opera repertoire: the Mozart - Da Ponte Trilogy.

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.
