Don Giovanni

Benedikt von Peter's new staging of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's masterpiece is to be seen from 26 June at the opera house - in Italian language with German surtitles.

Following "Intolleranza 1960" and "La traviata" director Benedikt von Peter's third work at the Hannover State Opera is dedicated to "the opera of all operas", as E. T. A. Hoffmann had called it once: "Don Giovanni". To this day it endures as opera’s ultimate cautionary tale about the human cost of unbridled lust.

Short summary

Don Giovanni is a womanizer. He makes a move on any woman, and jilts his lovers. He has instructed his attendant, Leporello, to stand guard outside while he attempts to creep into the bedroom of Donna Anna. But, she makes a low scream. Though her father, the Commendatore comes to her assistance, Don Giovanni stabs him to death with a dagger, and he runs away with his attendant, Leporello. However, Don Giovanni has no sense of remorse and switches clothes with Leporello and leaves to attempt to seduce. Later on a  stone statue in a graveyard begins to talk to Don Giovanni in a scary voice, and puts pressure on him to repent his evil deeds. But, Don Giovanni ignores his advice, and he audaciously invites the stone statue to dinner. That evening, while Don Giovanni is enjoying luxurious dinner the stone statue does appear.
