Don Giovanni

Don Giovanni is a free adaptation of Mozart's Opera. Loyal to Lorenzo da Ponte's libretto, the play kept the opera's universal spirit, working as a comedy. The songs by Mozart are used incidentally, and they are all played and sung live by the actors. In this adaptation, Don Juan was turned into a kiss collector.
By trying to win one more lady's heart, Don Giovanni is caught by her father, the Commander, and ends up killing him during their confrontation. The hero runs away and keeps living numerous adventures. The Commander's daughter, disconsolate, seeks to avenge her father's death. In the end, all the ones who were fooled by Don Giovanni unite against him to put an end to his adventures; and then, the already dead Commander, ends up taking him to the "other world".

Don Giovanni
"There are no excesses; the creative simplicity is the central pillar not only of the perfectly designed set and its appropriate props, but also of the costumes, to which the actors integrate, creating a live body."
