Wildly divergent opinions on the Dallas Opera’s current production of Mozart’s “Don Giovanni.”
Dean Cassella of “DFW Renaissance” thought we did justice to the complexity implied by the term, dramma giocosa.
The Associated Press was disappointed overall, here’s the review carried on WFAA.com.
Mark-Brian Sonna of John Garcia’s “The Column” and Pegasus News thought it was worth every penny.
Arts Editor Terri Mathews of the “Sulphur Springs News-Telegram” found it “grand opera at its finest.” She also wrote a piece, as did KERA’s Stephen Becker, about the tremendous differences of opinion inspired by this production.
And “Music in Other Words” wondered, among other things, why we didn’t cut the epilogue.
Lauren Smart of SMU’s “The Daily Campus” covered the opera for the younger generation, and liked what she heard.
Feel free to chime-in at any time!
