This looks like a one-time narrative adaption with 21st century music (not sure how much Mozart there is still in there, and right now, the French are kind of messing with my French because I am not quite over the screenshot above), but it is queer Lady Don Giovanni.
(By which I mean, God yes please)
(Doesn’t Bartoli have dibs on that?)
(also, thadieu: are you thinking what I am thinking and trying not to point out here?)
On a completely unrelated note (or not), it is “Don Giovanni” week, with the London-premiered Holten production opening in Barcelona this week (or, depending on the cast, next week), so it seems to be as good a time as any to dig out our favorite modified versions of this opera again. Right after I stare for another minute at this Lyon photo (…must get back to type discussion… also, must get help). There is a video trailer, too (didn’t check it out yet. Alert to the community comes first).
…The Giovanni soprano here is Petra Magoni.
Mélange des genres sexuels mais aussi musicaux avec un mix d’opéra, rock, pop et rythmes latinos, dans un décor de cabaret jazzy des années 20 du type “Cotton Club”.
…am I hallucinating this?
Also, can Culturebox please broadcast this and not just tease us about it?
