Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Don Giovanni is not only a story about a punished sinner, as it is also not a simple music comedy, too. It is a unique piece of drama work, in which seemingly typical funny situations, so uncomplicated and slight in other operas, here they are rough and they cause an overall tension. Giovanni is punished at the end, although the question who was it that sentenced and punished him has no answer. Was is the God, or as Jozef Bednárik, the director of the production suggests, was it Giovanni’s empty and dry heart?
