Don Giovanni

By margottyoung

This was a good experience of a fine production of a GREAT opera. We were very disappointed and surprised that the audience was so small. On balance, good, BUT: One attendee crunched popcorn - loudly - during the first act. VERY distracting and very selfish on his part.

The supreme Don Giovanni

By richardnachman

As good as it gets. Singers were outstanding. Acting superb. Orchestra marvelous. I think Mozart would heartily approve the interpretation. Never strained . Never boring. Great subtle humor. A most enlightening and inspired performance.

Saw this production for the second time, it is amazing. Also saw Le Comte Ory last week Too bad it was not well attended. Perhaps lack of advertising ?

Don Giovanni from the Met

By goetzkuno
Written June 28, 2012
The performance was wonderful, marred only by a very poor environment at the theatre in Germantown, MD. Singing, acting, costumes, and orchestra were outstanding - superb. The scenery was sparse but true to the period of the piece and therefore quite satisfactory. The theatre changed the location where they showed this opera but kept it a secret until minutes before the performance - when a representative led us to the "ersatz" theatre. The sound system was in super-duper-overdrive, painful to the ears and, at times, difficult to enjoy. Bottom line: the production by the Met deserves 4.5 stars, falling short of expectations only in the set and because the poor rendition by the theatre greatly diminished the otherwise heavenly Mozart music. The theatre rates 1 star for (a) poor management, (b) poor sound rendition, and (c) excessive sound volume.
