Performance synopsis

One of the most captivating figures in Western culture, Don Juan, is calling for a new story. Musically, we are transported to sometime around the 17th and 18th century – the time of Gluck and Bach. But Bondara’s interpretation, based on Molière’s drama, poses questions about the cause of Don Juanism. Are we still shocked by the seducer from Seville in our sexualised society, with its omnipresent pornography? Is Don Juan a new scourge of modernity?
