Teodor Currentzis:
“With this work he broke the boundaries of the genre and when I try to find the next step forward from Don Giovanni, there is none. I feel that the next step in opera is probably Alban Berg’s Wozzeck. Mozart went in a direction that was very difficult to follow. He composed with such virtuosity of time, colour, orchestration, voices and ensembles that he was almost impossible to follow.”

The Guardian, Nicholas Kenyon
On the evidence of this disorientating and sometimes shocking Don Giovanni, Teodor Currentzis is to Mozart what Emma Rice is to Shakespeare: sceptical, questioning, reinventing with bright lights and vividly colourful insights.
