Don Giovanni
Leporello's Revenge

Mozart's opera presented from the point of view of Don Giovanni's servant, Leporello.


A printer-friendly version of this page 55 minutes
Directed by Barbara Willis Sweete
Produced by Rhombus Media
Music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Performed by The Canadian Opera Company Orchestra - Richard Bradshaw, conductor
Cast: Dmitri Hvorostovsky, Gary Relyea, Dominique Labelle, Barbara Dunn-Prosser, Krisztina Szabo, Michael Colvin, Alain Coulombe, Florence Illi
Produced in Association with Bravo Canada, CBC, WNET, NHK, Channel 4



This film takes Mozart's operatic masterpiece "Don Giovanni", and without changing a note of the music, turns the opera inside out. The story is presented by Don Giovanni's servant, Leporello, who hosts a 'film within a film' that reveals the shocking secret of his master's identity.

Dmitri Horostovsky, the great Russian baritone, sings both the roles of Leporello and Don Giovanni. Through the use of spectacular visual effects, the dark side of the opera comes to life, and Dmitri transcends time and dimension to dramatically interact with himself.

The provocative ending to Leporello's story will be a surprise to everyone.

Reviews
"If the idea of opera on TV seems dull, think again. Don Giovanni is magnetic...Many fine plays have been adapted for TV...but this is the first opera to really make the leap. It's...lively, fresh, and eminently watchable."
The Christian Science Monitor

"Even if you prefer your Mozart straight...Don Giovanni is just short of marvelous."
John Leonard, New York Magazine

"Much imagination has been applied to the making of this film, and it is musically impressive, with Hvorostovky in especially fine voice."
The Toronto Star

"Leporello's Revenge is a provocative take on an operatic masterpiece, infusing unprecedented intrigue and suspense into a time-honored classic. Whether you're an opera buff or an uninitiated student, brush up on your opera history, sit back and get ready for an adventure!"
