Don Giovanni: A beginner's guide to Mozart's operas
The action ends at Don Giovanni’s chambers where he’s indulging in a banquet. He is interrupted by Elvira who declares she is no longer angry with him, but instead pities him, begging him to turn his life around. Unmoved by her sentiments, Giovanni insists wine and women are the essence of life. Elvira storms off again, only to let out a terrified scream and run back into the castle. The servant goes out to investigate, only to come face-to-face with the Commendatore’s statue. Pictured: Anatoli Kotscherga, Bo Skovhus, Kristine Opolais and Kyle Ketelsen perform as Il Commendatore, Don Giovanni, Donna Elvira and Leporelle, the theatre de l'Archeveche in Aix-en-Provence, part of the 62st lyrical art festival.
