Mozart’s darkest operatic masterpiece with a superb cast featuring Renée Fleming and Bryn Terfel, masterfully conducted by James Levine with Franco Zeffirelli’s beautiful staging.
Bryn Terfel, giving his first Don Giovanni at the MET, received rave reviews for both his singing and his dramatic performance – as the Los Angeles Times puts it: “Terfel is exquisite as the Don, raping and pillaging his way through Europe: His voice, diction and acting are perhaps the best in the role since Cesare Siepi.”
Renée Fleming proves to be the perfect match to Terfel with her telling characterization of Donna Anna – the Boston Herald wrote: “Thank heaven for Fleming . . . she easily walks away with the evening. She looks great, sounds greater and delivers the greatest ‘Non mi dir’ . . . in memory, filling it with all the pain of unfulfilled and conflicted passion that’s just below the music’s surface.”
Zeffirelli’s production from 1990 has an unashamed theatricality, with painted skyscapes, outsize columns and a glimpse of hell at the end straight from the world of 18th-century theatre – the staging was partially renewed to open the 2000 season
