I’m grateful for getting in the mood! I don’t know if folks in the last row of the Royal Opera House can make out the hand prints that will populate the giant wall of the unit set of this “Don Giovanni”, but up close, their presence is quite ominous and moody to say the least, giving me a healthy dose of motivation and excitement to see how all the pieces of this Mozartean puzzle will come together! We get the idea of all the lives that have been ruined by Don Giovanni and his amoral ways, but one question that comes to mind in these days is to wonder how many of his victims were willing collaborators in their own downfall? Of course, it’s only one of MANY questions as I discover this woman, this drama, this man, this astounding music! Oy yes, I’m definitely getting eager to put this all together!!
