The world-famous singer, conductor and the holder of 14 Grammy Awards Plácido Domingo came up, as conductor and artistic director, with a unique Don Giovanni at the Estates Theatre Prague, where the opera had its premiere 230 years ago. The production boasts an original classic scene, traditional costumes designed by Theodor Pištek, the Oscar winner for “Best costume design” for the Amadeus movie and authentic stage direction matching the performance features from 1787. The production is conceived as a replica of the legendary staging by the National Theatre Opera from 1969. The opera shines under the direction of Jirí Nekvasil, which is further enhanced by stars of the Czech opera scene, handpicked by Maestro Domingo himself. Also adding vitality to the production are four winners of the renowned, international vocal competition, Operalia, which Domingo himself founded in 1993: Irina Lungu, Dmitry Korchak, Julia Novikova, and Simone Alberghini. “The palpable sense of history, enthusiasm of the cast and excitement of the star conductor all contributed to an atmosphere that made the performance seem larger than life.” (Bachtrack)



Simone Alberghini makes an elegant Giovanni, romantic with a touch of irony. He is well served by Adrian Sâmpetrean as Leporello: bearded, thinning on top and slightly seedy. Dmitry Korchak is a credibly vigorous Don Ottavio. The women are excellent; Irina Lungu is a powerful Donna Anna, and Katerina Knezíková is touching as Elvira. In general, there is much to admire in the conducting of Placido Domingo.
