Don Giovanni

 

Don Giovanni   
 

 

Artist's Notes:

With its drama, marvelous music, and complex characters, Mozart's opera, Don Giovanni,  amazes us and moves our imagination. The skill of the singers and the otherworldly ambiance of the stage holds our attention as we are drawn into the performance. Long before I became an artist, music was inspirational to me. While I grew up, I learned to play the violin, and many of my earliest memories are of listening to radio broadcasts of the Metropolitan Opera. I loved the thought of communities of performers working together to share their skill to transport us from our daily lives into a fantastic world of excitement.

The story of Don Juan has been told by different writers and composers, and now film-makers, each bringing their own ideas to the tale. I see the beauty of Mozart to create the quintessential Don Juan legend. It is a musical wonder, with grand and abhorrent characters. My picture is a collage of scenes, including the Commendatore’s statue, whose spirit will seal Don Giovanni’s fate.
